Growing: Time Outs and Retreats

WellSpring offers a variety of retreats to help enliven your relationship with God.

There are many helpful books written about the need for spiritual formation and the practices that encourage growth. Our purpose is to provide settings and facilitators to accompany you in the actual process. We are a laboratory not a text book.

We are committed to helping each person discover their unique and individual rhythms for growing in their relationship with Jesus.

And we help you to develop practices that make that abundant life sustainable in your everyday circumstances.

Each retreat offers input on a theme and leads you into ways of engaging with God including directed silence and solitude, guided meditation on scripture, prayer and listening, artistic expression, journaling and other practices to enliven your conversation.

Lenten Retreats 2020

“Refocusing our lives… through the lens of Lent, Easter and Pentecost”

“One thing I do know. I was blind, but now I see!” – from John 9

Having given sight to a man who was blind from birth, Jesus declares that opening the eyes of the blind—not only physically, but spiritually—is the very reason he came into the world. The events surrounding Jesus’ arrest, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension reveal the true definition of spiritual blindness. But the transformed lives of the disciples, the apostle Paul, and thousands of new believers reveal the powerful miracle of being given “eyes to see”. This miracle of receiving new sight continues throughout our lives!

This mini retreat will offer time, space and resources for “checking your spiritual eyesight”—to reveal blind spots, to give focus to what seems blurry, to brighten the color in your world, to keep you from focusing only upon what is up close or far away, and to broaden your peripheral vision.
