May 31, 2019, 10:00 am - 11:59 pm

Unfortunately, our presbytery’s spring retreat has been postponed to an undetermined time in the future.

“Bread of Heaven fill me till I want no more”

We’re planning a retreat (or, more intentionally, an Advance). At 10:00 am Friday, May 31st you are invited to gather at Christ the King Spiritual Life Center for a time to build up and celebrate the community and mission we are as the Body of Christ in Albany Presbytery.

This time together will be designed to help us to be built up in Christ, to equip us for service in the world, and bring glory to God. Plan on coming, and help make our Koinonia (our Common Life Together) uncommonly good!

Wild      Work        Wait        Witness        Wonder

Come away for a season of refreshment with colleagues and friends. Listen to God’s many uses of Bread in Sacred History and allow the work of breadmaking guide your reflections.

Bring with you:

  • personal items for overnight
  • a mixing bowl (about 1-gallon capacity)
  • Kitchen towel
  • Mixing spoon (with a comfortable handle)
  • Bread pan (if you have one)
  • Everything else will be provided

Who is invited?

This retreat is open to all members of our Presbytery: If you would like to invite someone from another faith tradition (or another presbytery) please feel free to do so, although scholarship help will only be available to members of our Presbytery (as the Synod has given us the scholarship monies for this purpose).

Where is this going to be held?

Christ the King Spiritual Life Center is 25 minutes from Hebron United Church. Saturday morning we will have breakfast together and then drive to our Presbytery meeting in time for Pre-meeting conversations (9:00 am) or later for registration (9:30 am).
