Come to the Waters – Mini Retreat: “Keep It Simple”

Each Retreat has a different spiritual focus. Register here:

Saturday, Dec 2:

In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we will enter the quiet invitation of “Advent” – the Christian season of preparing for Christmas. We will explore practices that help us simplify life, simplify the season, and simplify our expectations.

  • Saturdays, Dec 2, Jan 13, Feb 10, Apr 13 (come to as many as you wish).
  • Fee $40 per Saturday (scholarships available upon request).
  • Retreat location is the beautiful campus of North Hollywood First United Methodist Church.
  • To register, email or call 818-763-8231.

Author and spiritual director Ruth Haley Barton wrote in her book Invitation to Retreat that we “routinely wear ourselves out with good things and with lesser things, and we don’t even know we are doing it half the time.” In the midst of such busy-ness, Jesus said to his disciples, “Come away to a deserted place… and rest a while.” Come to the Waters mini retreats are an opportunity to do just that, to come away for while and find rest for your soul. These half day retreats are led by Pastor Chamie, NoHo First UMC’s lead pastor, who also is a certified spiritual director. She has led retreats for three decades. The flow of each retreat morning will look something like this:

8:30 AM Check-in, pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, grab a snack, and settle in

9:00 AM Large group gathering time of teaching, reflection, and prayer

10:00 AM Individual time or small group time do the spiritual practice(s) you feel you most need on that day

11:15 AM Large group closing time

11:45 AM Farewell
