For Ages 65+

An Ingalls Creek retreat presented by the Center for Faith, Calling, and Community

For this September retreat, we host GUIDED CONVERSATIONS surrounding the broad topic of purposeful living, offering a safe space for YOUR participation, learning, fellowship, encouragement, and growth.

  • What does it mean to flourish in this third third of life?
  • How can I live a meaningful life through this last phase of life?
  • What can I do to share my story and ensure a legacy?
  • In what ways can I be a Kingdom presence and a power for good?

Join us for this Ingalls Creek Faith, Calling, and Community on-site retreat to discuss, share, and explore these questions and more.

We’ll share stories and learn from one another.  Expect a slower pace so you can enjoy time to relax, reflect, rest, relate, and have fun!  Build new relationships.  Be blessed and encouraged in your spiritual life.  Experience community, transparency, honesty, vulnerability, and openness.
