Program & Theme 

Enjoy a guided weekend of silence, spiritual renewal, rest, and listening to the voice of God. Our guest speaker and facilitator is Rev. Terry Cathcart, a seasoned pastor, spiritual director, and silent retreat leader. He has been involved in retreat ministry for over 40 years. He’ll be accompanied by worship leader Rob Engelhart, as well as a team of spiritual directors with whom participants may meet during the weekend.

In one of David’s Psalms we hear God say, Be still and know that I am God.  Covenant Point’s Silent Directed Retreat offers an opportunity to spend a weekend in prayerful silence with about 25 other people who are also seeking to focus their attention on listening for God’s voice.

The weekend will include a private room for each participant with plenty of space for silence and solitude. There will also be opportunities to meet with a spiritual director. With the exception of the times of worship and spiritual direction, the retreat will take place in silence. Check-in opens at 4:00 pm and the retreat begins with dinner at 6:00 pm (Central Time) Friday and concludes at 1:00pm Sunday.

The worship gatherings for the retreat will include the singing of Taize chants and messages that focus on this year’s theme: Praying With Poets. Our worship will conclude with lectio divina prayer with texts related to the theme. Three Spiritual Directors will also be available for those wishing to have a spiritual direction conversation during the retreat.
