Want useful and fundamental tools to invite the Holy Spirit into your daily decisions? Our fall Young Adult Charis Retreat can help you learn some! Led by a team in their 20s and 30s, this weekend retreat will focus on creating silence and reflection time in order to fully listen and hear God’s word in the midst of our busy lives. No matter what type of decisions you are facing, this retreat will help you learn how to talk to God about your decisions and listen for where the Holy Spirit is calling you.
Join other young adults for a weekend of personal reflection, small group discussion, and peer witness talks. Through these activities, you can pause:
- See the Holy Spirit working in your life,
- Hear God’s call encouraging you to use your gifts, and
- Build a community with other young adults who are making similar decisions
Please consider if God is calling you to this retreat. If you want to draw closer in your relationship with God, sign up now to secure your spot! There are only 50 spots available.
As young adults, our faith and spirituality give us tools to reflect on our past and move forward with courage and grace, even when the future is uncertain. In a world of constant change, this is a retreat about moving forward, facing turning points, and being sustained by that faith during times of transition.
