Events & Retreats

Unplugged Retreat

Fridays: March 24 & June 2

Unplug from the world and spend a day reconnecting with God through one of two tracks:

  1. The Unplugged Track. Led by Ron Stohler, Pastor of Adult Ministries & Discipleship, this track allows you to unplug from the world around you and spend a day reconnecting with God. This is a time to listen, reflect, rest and restore your soul. Register here.

  2. The Enneagram Track. Led by David Bell, Pastor of Leadership Development, this track uses an assessment based on nine distinct personality types to help you discover your strengths, weaknesses, and how God wants you to use them in His kingdom work. David will take you through the Enneagram and be available for one-on-one consultation. You will first need to register for Unplugged, then take the Enneagram online and send your results to Beth Bertino prior to the retreat.
