Daring Way Retreat - May 4-5
Friday 6.30-9.00pm and Saturday 8.30am-4.00pm
Led by The Rev. Matt Wise, certified Daring Way Facilitator
Los Patios (2015 NE Loop 410, 78217)
Using the work of shame researcher (and Episcopalian), Brené Brown, we will deeply explore the difficult but necessary practice of vulnerability to live the fullest lives God dreams for us. By claiming our own values, and by more fully understanding shame and courage, we will discover what it means to show up, to be seen, and to live bravely.
This retreat does not require previous participation in the Daring Greatly class, but will cover some of the same topics in greater depth. Your $30 registration fee includes snacks, continental breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and all necessary Daring Way materials. You can find registration on the website. For more information email The Rev. Matt Wise.

Images of the Divine in Film
Friday, May 11 at 6.00pm
Join us for the fourth Images of the Divine in Film, where we will continue to explore how God is often experienced in varied and unusual ways, including through media and film. This class is an experiential one in which we will view and discuss films together. Our fourth film is Babbette's Feast. While the film for the evening is for adults only, we will also have a parallel opportunity for the kids of those who are attending, which will include dinner, games, and a movie of their own that is just right for them, as well as nursery for itty bitty's. Dinner is provided; please reserve your spot by signing up online.
Vacation Bible School
June 18-21, 9.00am-12.00pm
All children rising Kindergarten to rising 6th grade are invited to join us for a fun-filled week as we learn all about one of God’s faithful followers, Daniel. Each day, the children will become part of history as they see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in Babylon!
We hope you’ll make plans to be involved in VBS this year - we would love to have your children and you! We will have a special group led by our nursery staff for our youngest participants, ages 2-4.
