Senior Retreat

Where Do I go from here?

Life as an undergraduate and life after graduation are different things.  Graduation from college means a BIG transition.  How will you meet the challenges of that transition? Save the date for this opportunity to share with other seniors as you reflect on how to live your faith after your college years.

Saturday, April 8, 2017, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

PSALMS: The Faithfulness of God's Love

March 31st -April 1st

Mount Olivet Retreat Center

Join us as we experience God's love through the Psalms. A God that is present, blessing us, loving us unconditionally, restoring us, but also calling us to go out of ourselves in the same way, blessing, loving and restoring.

Centering Prayer

 

Every Thursday at 8:30am
Meditation Room, ASC 251

According to Thomas Merton, "the best way to come to God is to go to your own center and pass through that center into the center of God." Centering Prayer is a means to experience God's presence within us, and as a prayer, it brings the depths of the contemplative experience long practiced within the Christian tradition to those who, in the midst of a busy life, long for that intimate relationship with the God.

Joy us for 20 minutes of Centering Prayer, no experience required. Everyone is welcome.
