“Ruff” and Ready!
One dog’s story of comforting even in the hardest situations. God’s love shines through it all! Presented by Tabby and her handlers from St. Paul Des Peres Lutheran.
Bible Study Helps
Whether yours is a weathered Bible, or one yet to be cracked open, this breakout session will provide a basic tool set that will aid you in studying the Bible on your own, as well as provide tips on how to glean insights into Scripture electronically. Presented by Debra Lein.
The Christian life is not a sprint; it’s a marathon. Our lives take many twists and turns and are filled with disappointments, pressures and heartaches. In this breakout session, we will learn how an unshakable faith in a very big God can help us avoid being sidelined by loss of hope and trivial diversions as we race toward the finish line. Presented by Margaret Hibbeler.
This session will offer the peace of the sanctuary to lift up your own prayers and also pray for the petitions from the prayer cards submitted at the retreat. Offered by the Prayer Committee.
Visual Faith Workshop
The Lord wants us to remember all His blessings in our lives. Creating a visual faith journal is a way to document God’s faithfulness in our lives. In this workshop we will start a 30-day visual faith journal. We’ll learn how to doodle Bible verses, draw inspiring quotes and document the everyday moments in our lives. Come join us in this journey. No artistic talent required! Presented by Marsha Baker.
