    “Going Deeper.” An Introduction to the Spiritual Practice of Discernment

    Sundays, September 14 and 21, 10:00 a.m., Hastings Room

    First Church will again host an all-ages, all-church retreat this fall. Building on the success of last year's retreat, which was attended by over 90 people (!), we will again gather for a full weekend of fun and fellowship. There will be time for yourself, time with your family, time to mix it up with others you may not know. The gathering will be based on the theme of Going Deeper.
