Discipleship at Calvary

Calvary is developing Spiritual Formation retreats that will be offered throughout the year. As followers of Jesus, we are all in the process of becoming the men and women that God has created us to be. Spiritual Formation Retreats can be a pivotal experience on this journey. These retreats will provide space to get out of the hustle and bustle and get away with Jesus and other Jesus followers. It will be a time of rest, learning, training, and community.

There will be different focuses to each retreat but they are best to be taken in order. The first is a "Silence & Solitude retreat", the following retreats will be "Fasting" and "Crafting a Rule of Life".

Quotes from previous retreat goers

"Silence and solitude are two of the most beautiful spiritual disciplines. This retreat helped me to solidify these revitalizing disciplines into my daily life. What a breath of fresh air!"

"The retreat experience showed me how to listen to God who speaks in the gentle whisper despite the noise and hurry around me. I was able to understand that in order to move ahead, you have to stand still and let Him tell you the direction. "

"I attended the August 2021 Calvary-sponsored spirtual formation retreat on silence and solitude. It was a time of reflection, refreshment and rest. The discussion sessions and time spent alone with God provided me with new insight on how to better communicate with the Lord as well as how to hear his voice and his guidance for my life. I highly recommend participation in future retreats for any church member or regular attendee who is interested in growing spiritually."
