GRACE Teen Retreat
June 18 @ 4:00 pm - June 21 @ 12:00 pm
The Grace Journey is a three-day weekend layman lead retreat patterned after the description of the early church in the acts of the Apostles (ACTS 2:42-47); breaking bread together, worshiping together, receiving instruction together, sharing in common, and reaching out in loving service. No two Grace Journeys are exactly alike. There are certain events that are required, but each retreat is unique because of the individuality of each team.
The purpose of the weekend is to invite the retreatant to renew or develop a relationship with our Lord and fellow Christians through adoration and daily prayer; through community in one’s church as a member of the body of Christ; through teaching and encouraging an intellectual and spiritual growth that gives fruits in our daily lives; and finally to encourage a spirit of service to our Lord and our church.
Participants experience God’s love and joy through the weekend, return to their faith community with a deeper love for each other and an increased desire to become more involved in their church community. This mission is continued and enhanced by scheduled gatherings of the GRACE community, prayer groups and by evangelizing or service projects.
