Do you struggle to believe that God loves you on a personal level? Is it easy for you to accept His love for the world as a whole, or even other individuals, but find it difficult to grasp for yourself? Maybe you've heard people talk about the love they have experienced from God and wondered if that's even possible for you. Or maybe you're just ready to admit that your relationship with God isn't satisfying and in the secret places of your heart you are hoping that there is more. The Summer of Love was created for you!
You are invited to join us this Summer as we press into the personal and intimate Love of God for each of us. This will be a 3-part retreat series with time spent alone with God and with each other. We'll begin to talk with God about our disappointments, give Him consent to bring our true longings to the surface, and then in the confidence of the Love He has promised us through His Son Jesus, ask for the MORE of Him our souls long for.
We will gather in person on Saturday, June 19 from 5:30- 8:00 PM for a time of guided retreat, food and fellowship that will kick off our Summer of Love. You'll be given materials to extend your retreat with exercises to put you in a receptive posture. Our second gathering will be on Zoom July 24th from 6:00-7:00 PM, and our final retreat will be in person Saturday, August 21 from 5:30-8:00. We'll share how God came close and revealed His love for us during this summer, and gather the gifts and graces as we feast on the good food He provides!
So join us as we boldly ask for the summer of 2021 to be marked by having a personal encounter with Love, and remembered as the turning point in our relationship with the One Who longs for us to know ourselves as His Beloved.
