Summer Prayer Retreat—John 17: Praying Like Jesus

Saturday, Jul 8, 2017 at 10:00AM - 4:00 PM

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.


Nurture your relationship with God away from the hustle and bustle of classes and activities with a one-day prayer retreat.

There are several places in the Gospels where Jesus teaches us how to pray, but John 17 gives us the holy privilege of listening in to Jesus himself at prayer. In this one-day retreat, we’ll use Scripture meditation, music, and guided personal and group prayer to allow Jesus’ conversation with the Father to shape our own. 

Cost is $35 for full-time students and seniors, $50 for adults.  Lunch is included in the cost of registration.

Registration for this event closes on Thursday, July 6.
