Step away from your busy life and listen to God’s voice.

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 for 2-Night Option A opens at 4:00 pm and the retreat begins with dinner at 5:30 pm (Central Time) Friday and concludes at 1:00pm Sunday. Check-in for 2-Night Option B opens at 4:00 pm and the retreat begins with dinner at 5:30 pm (Central Time) Sunday and concludes at 1:00pm Tuesday. You may also register for both options, and join us for the entire 4-days.
The worship gatherings for the retreat will include the singing of Taize chants and messages. Our worship will conclude with lectio divina prayer. Three Spiritual Directors will also be available for those wishing to have a spiritual direction conversation during the retreat.
Serving on the facilitating team for this year’s retreat will be: Terry Cathcart (spiritual director and retreat leader), Rob Engelhart (worship leader), and several other spiritual directors.
