Giving Up Time to be with HIM

Life has continued to get more and more noisy. Finding a place of quietness is hard to find. God calls us to get away with Him, but there’s no place quiet enough. Retreats offer this opportunity to get away from the noise and just be alone with God’s creation and quiet our souls in order to hear Him clearly.

On January  19-21 at Green Lake Conference Center, Pathways Church will be hosting our 2018 Prayer Retreat. This is open to both men and women, couples and singles. As we quiet our souls before the Lord, read His word and listen for His voice, He will open the door to secret places and invites us in with Him.

Cost:
$208.00 for single room
$135 for 2 / room
$108 for 3 / room
$270 for couples

Pricing includes:

  • Room for 2 nights
  • Meals on Saturday
  • Breakfast and Lunch on Sunday

Check in as early as 3:00pm. Friday Dinner on site is an additional $15.00.
Retreat will begin promptly at 6:30pm on Friday and end at 2pm on Sunday.

Open your heart to a new experience in the presence of the Lord.

Prayer has been an ongoing practice in my life for a long time. From the time I was a little girl I began to question the power of prayer in my life. Each night I would say my prayers before bedtime; the traditional “Now I lay me” then into blessing all my relatives. As I grew, prayer became a way to ask God for things I wanted, and when He didn’t come through the feeling of disappointment came. Prayer was just a ritual I had learned as a child to keep me safe and get the things I needed, but as an adult God began to teach me the great value in what prayer brought to my life. I realized that prayer was going to cost me something.

Growing up in my faith I had many mentors when it came to prayer, but my greatest mentor was within my own family. I had a great grandmother who knew the meaning of prayer. She had a beautiful garden in  her back yard and off in the corner was a swing. Anytime I would go to visit with her she would be sitting on that swing with her Bible. It was her getaway place to be in the presence of the Lord, her place away from the world in all its loudness. As I reflect on these memories I can hear her say, ‘This is my place to talk with God. I praise him for everything he has done in my life, but words are just not enough. My time is of value so I give it to him. This is the place I can give him my all, set away from the world.’
