    Slowing to Hear - Lent: a One-Day Spiritual Retreat
    Saturday, March 14 | Oak Brook Campus

    When Jesus had to choose twelve disciples to pour his life into, what did he do? He spent the night in prayer. After a busy ministry schedule with the disciples, Jesus invited them to “come with me, by yourselves, to a quiet place and get some rest.” Jesus followed the Spirit’s prompting into the wilderness for forty days to prepare for temptation. Luke tells us that “Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.” (Luke 5:16, NLT)

    There was a pattern and rhythm to the life of Jesus. This pattern forces us to ask, “If Jesus set aside extended times of retreat to stay focused on the Father and listen to the Spirit, how can we not do the same?”

    Think of your family vacation. Why do you take one? Vacations are a great way to reconnect with family, to recharge our relational and many times physical batteries. Retreats serve much of the same purpose in regard to our relationship with God and are a powerful means to create space for:

    • Worship – engaging our heart through song and prayer to love and be loved by God.
    • Grow – engaging our mind to reflect and listen to important aspects of our inner life that are typically kept silenced and hidden away.
    • Serve – engaging our hands to live in a Christlike sacrificial way towards others in the normal flow of your life – realizing you are free to love because you are freely loved.

    Everything we have is His, but often we forget and manage our money in ways that don’t reflect this. The nine-week biblically based Financial Peace University course tackles topics including budgeting, debt, insurance, retirement planning and giving, and offers baby steps to help with each area of finances along the way. Cost: $99 per household.

    This nine-week biblically based class is for everyone no matter your age or stage in life.

    Many people think Financial Peace University is a class for people who need to get out of debt. While that is partly true, it is also a great way to prepare for the next step in your finances or milestones ahead. Some people who have benefited from Financial Peace include:

    • Engaged couples or newlyweds
    • Young adults starting out on their own
    • People planning for retirement
    • Parents planning for their children’s college education
    • Recently widowed or divorced individuals who are handling finances for the first time


    Financial Coaching

    We have servant leaders from our congregation who have a background in financial planning and a heart to help others. These leaders meet with individuals or couples to help provide prayer and encouragement as well as practical budgeting help.

    Participation in Financial Peace University is required to benefit from this offering.

    For more information about either of these programs, please contact: Jody Paige | jpaige@christchurch.us | 630.321.3909
