How can I participate in my church? What does God call us to be? Involving new members in the church can be difficult, but a retreat is a great place to begin.

New members are often interested in finding a way to participate in the life of a congregation by serving. This retreat is designed to give new members a chance to reflect on their spiritual gifts and to find specific ways within the church to use those gifts. While this retreat was designed with new members in mind, it would also be a great retreat for youth who are getting ready to graduate high school and for young adults who are trying to figure out their new roles in the church.

Throughout the retreat participants will become familiar with the variety of spiritual gifts as named in Scripture and have time to reflect on their own gifts. Participants will also learn about opportunities to use their gifts within the church.

Retreat Participants

While this retreat design was originally created for new member (adult) groups, it would also work well with women's groups, youth groups, and groups comprised of both adult and youth leaders.
