    “Transform the eyes of your heart, for the Realm of God is here.”
    —A  contemplative translation of Mark 1:15


    Orientation, Friday Evening, May 17, 7- 9 PM

    As the woods awaken from the winter slumber, you are invited to retreat in nature. Take time to slow your pace, immerse in the sights and sounds of the woods, and through prayer and spiritual practices experience the natural world as a gateway to a deeper relationship with God. Our guide is Mark Kutolowski, a seasoned retreat leader and outdoor guide. The Friday evening program held at the church is an orientation to Creation Centered Contemplative Practices while Saturday is a time of Contemplative Practice held at the Church of the Woods, a hundred acre woodland in Canterbury. NH.

    The retreat is an invitation to :

    • Slow down and enjoy the beauty and awe of the outdoors
    • Learn Lectio Terra or Earth Lectio, a way of listening to God in creation
    • Pray in silence and community

    The cost of the Friday Evening and Saturday Retreat is $50. For Frequently Asked Questions regarding retreat details, click on the FCC Website Church Event Calendar for May 17 and 18. A brochure is available here and printed copies are available in the church lobby. Register here by April 17.
