Edmonds MPC Spiritual Retreat
Posted on January 14th, 2018
We are delighted that you are considering attending the
Ministries of Pastoral Care Spiritual Retreat
March 23-24, 2018
Jesus announced His ministry to the people of God by reading out these words from the scroll of Isaiah:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19a
He has sent us this same Spirit to the Church today, and we call this proclaiming, healing, and freeing work pastoral care.
The MPC retreat will be a time of receiving such care through worship, teaching, and personal prayer ministry. By receiving from the Lord, each attendee will also be growing in their capacity to offer this care to others. The retreat will address barriers to knowing God’s presence with us, equipping us to more fully collaborate with Him in personhood, family life, and vocation.
Who Should Attend?
All Christians are encouraged to attend. Those who are struggling with the wounds and compulsions that are common in our world today will find real help. Ministers and lay leaders from all denominations, and those in the healing professions such as counseling and medicine will find themselves strengthened for their service.
Friday, March 23, 9:00 AM – 8:30 PM
Saturday, March 24, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
The retreat will include meals together: lunch and dinner on Friday and lunch on Saturday.
