Fall Women’s Retreat 2021
Led by Laurie Matarazzo and Dale Selover
September 24 – Virtual Retreat
Theme: The Face of God
“Come,” my heart says, “seek the Lord’s face!”
Your face, Lord, do I seek.
— Psalm 27:8
Over the past year, many have gathered on Zoom for prayer, study, congregational worship, family parties, and friendly conversation, while others have used Facebook to join one another. We are warmed by the sight of faces we cannot see in the flesh, and we have become oriented to these electronic facial encounters as a norm in our COVID-19 world. And what of God? Where do we see the face of our loving Creator in the midst of all this?
We are excited to share that we will host in-person retreats for 2021 on the weekends of September 24-26 and October 8-10. Participants may begin to arrive anytime after 4 pm on Friday, with dinner at 5:30 pm. The retreat programming begins at 7 pm on Friday and concludes on Sunday by 11 am after a closing worship service. All local NJ health guidelines will be followed and information regarding any additional protocols will be shared in advance of the event.
There will also be a virtual retreat on Friday, September 24 from 10 am – 3 pm, via Zoom.
