Ready for a reset? Just in time for summer, Hope & Clarity: Recharge Your Spirit will be offered June 2-4, 2019 in Peoria, IL. This is your chance to join female colleagues in ministry for about 40 hours of relaxing, re-energizing and restoring. We’ll begin with a reception Sunday night at 7 pm Central, and end on Tuesday morning by 11 am Central.
We can’t promise that you’ll leave the retreat irrevocably transformed, but our intention is that you will leave strengthened, refreshed, and more connected with your self and with others.
We have a great hotel reserved for about 40 women.
We’ll begin there Sunday night at 7 pm Central for hors d’oeuvres and drinks, and informal conversation. Then we invite you to get a good night’s sleep.
On Monday (all day) and Tuesday (morning only) we’ll meet on the 12 beautiful acres of United Presbyterian Church. We’ll have small and large group discussion, worship and individual reflection time. All the things.
The Synod of Lincoln Trails is directing its financial resources toward this event, regardless of your presbytery membership, so that YOU can enjoy the resources of ONE ANOTHER. You must be a PC(USA) teaching elder or certified ruling elder/commissioned lay pastor, in good standing, to attend. Whether the setting in which you serve is a congregation, a hospital, a university or college, or another missional organization, we welcome you.
Total cost to you, for two nights’ lodging and all food and conference fees, is $50 if you share a hotel room, and $150 if you’d like your own hotel room. This fee is non-refundable beginning May 1st. Some partial scholarships are available – contact Sara for more details.
Spaces are limited and registration will go live on April 1st. We are asking that colleagues from synods beyond SOLT wait until April 10th to register.
We are proud to subsidize $250+ of the actual cost per partipicant, for all participants regardless of synod membership. We are stronger together.
