34th Annual Transformations Prayer Retreat

Leaders:  Rev. Kate Conolly and Rev. Michael Powell

The Transformations Prayer Retreat blends contemplation and community. Emphasis is on the communal sharing of the sacraments, with ample time for the solitude of prayer, meditation, and reflection.  Come apart to renew your spirit and re-center yourself through time in Christian community and intentional time with God.

The Prayer Retreat is structured so that your days can be custom-made to provide you with the rhythm of community, solitude, and worship you need for spiritual renewal.

There are three worship experiences each day, grounded in daily scripture.  Each morning begins with Holy Communion. At noon we gather for quiet, contemplative worship. At 5 o’clock we share an interactive worship time focusing on the scripture that we have lived with during the day. There is ample free time for rest, hiking, reading, and canoeing on the lake. Kate and Michael will lead evening programs.

All of this takes place in the beautiful and restorative setting of Suttle Lake Camp where your retreat will be grounded in Christ-like hospitality and delicious, nourishing meals.
