Advent Retreat Registration

Join us for WellSpring’s Advent Retreat

The Advent Season includes lots of invitations: gatherings and get-togethers of all kinds. But we also know that the holidays have unique challenges, too – busy-ness, stressed or strained family dynamics, loneliness, unmet expectations, and sometimes grief.

The arrival of a baby 2,000 years ago might seem irrelevant to these kinds of realities, but what if the coming of Jesus actually opened a way for a whole different kind of invitation?  This invite isn’t to a holiday party, but to a table of belonging, where you – all of you – are most welcome, indeed.

“If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in,
and we will share a meal together as friends.

-Jesus (from Revelation 3:20)

This retreat will give you an opportunity to notice God’s invitation in your own life and respond.


What to expect at these retreats:
Meaningful large-group teaching, times of guided individual reflection (including retreat materials), pauses for worship, with an ample continental breakfast.

Consider one of our Portable Retreats!

Our Portable Retreats help you create space to be with God and then guide you into conversation you are longing to have.

Designed for individual or small group use, each downloadable retreat engages a topic with prayer prompts and ideas for reflection.

"I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into springs."
- Isaiah 41:18
