Love in motion: Eco-Justice Youth Retreat 2018 (Ecojustice) @Ojai

April 20, 2018
04:00 PM - 01:00 PM
Retreat

Love in Motion is a weekend retreat where we’ll encounter God’s love through action. We will get our hands dirty in the soil of God’s creation. We will educate ourselves to become more eco-literate and justice-oriented. We will explore our ancient stories of creation and origins. 

This retreat is designed to be an immersive experience.  Throughout the weekend we will worship together, eat together, serve together, play together, and learn together.

This year we will be partnering with the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, the Abundant Table Farm Project, and the Community Roots Garden for both service and education around issues related to creation care.  We are trying very hard to practice what we preach making this as low of an ecological impact event as possible through reducing waste, recycling, carpooling, and using reusables.

 Our worship times include passionate modern worship led by an experienced team of worship artists and we will be featuring Rev. Francisco Garcia-Velasquez from Mission Hills UMC in San Diego as our spiritual guide / speaker for the weekend.

Prayer Hacks Women's Retreat 2018 (Camp & Retreat) @Aldersgate Retreat

April 20, 2018
07:30 PM
Aldersgate Retreat Center Event / Retreat

This retreat is going to equip you with some amazing, simple, and meaningful prayer tools that you can use anywhere, anytime of the day.

We have heard the scripture: “Pray without ceasing” and think it is impossible. But maybe it isn’t. Maybe we can learn a few prayer hacks that will help us to pray from the time we wake, to the time we go to sleep.

Participants will explore and experiment with a variety of prayer tools, from journaling to spiritual direction. We will learn about the ancient prayer-hours of the day, and how to easily incorporate them into our daily lives. Each woman will leave the beautiful Aldersgate Retreat Center with a renewed spirit, and a collection of marvelous ready-to-use prayer tools! Bring a friend or a small group of women from your congregation and deepen the ties that bind us one to another.

Retreat leaders: Melinda Trotti, Retreat Leader and Spiritual Director, Rev. Marlene Urban-Funk, Clergywoman and Retreat Leader

Cost: $155.00 (2 nights, 4 meals and programming)
