Explore Your Vocation

This deacons’ retreat is set for Saturday, August 24. During this retreat, we will explore what it means to reflect on your vocation, or sense of calling. The retreat will include reflective exercises, presentations and discussion. There will be an additional focus on tools and resources to help you better explore your gifts, talents, and strengths and how an awareness of these can be especially important as you live out your calling(s) in community and leadership settings. We will begin at 9:30am in the Parlor and finish up by about 1pm with lunch included.
 
The retreat will be held in the Parlor. Cost is $20/person. (If you paid for the retreat in February, then please check the appropriate box in the pay section of the registration.)
 
Please respond by August 18 – attending or not.
 
Our retreat leader is Eric Cain.
