Workshop: “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” Exodus
33:14 As we dwell in the Presence of God, we find a shift in the atmosphere both
around us and within us. Pressing in to God draws us into a deeper relationship with
Him where we rest in the truth that we are His beloved children, cherished and adored
by Him. It is in His Presence, immersed in His love, that we are healed and restored.
Come away with us to a time of refreshment, refilling and renewal in the Presence of
God. Draw close to Him and allow Him to fill you anew with His love and His light.

Workshop: Wellspring of Life
“Pay attention to the welfare of your inner most being, for from there flows the wellspring
of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
How do we tap into that wellspring of life? How do we hear God and create space
where others can learn to hear life-giving, healing words from God? In this workshop we
will practice listening to God in prayer for ourselves and others.
