You’re Invited to The Silent Wild

silent wild

Imagine this: you take the picturesque drive to Mount Rainier National Park. You leave all electronics behind and venture into the woods, listening only to the sounds of nature. As you make yourself comfortable on a rock overlooking a majestic landscape, you hear something else. Or maybe it’s not so much hearing as it is a feeling in your soul. The voice of God. Embrace the rest, the wilderness and rejuvenate your spirit on The Silent Wild.

There will be two opportunities to participate this summer. The first is Saturday, July 9th and for those who prefer a weekday option, the second takes place on Monday, August 22nd.

You are strongly encouraged to sign up for one (or both!) of these opportunities. A sample itinerary is below and carpools can be arranged. Encourage members of your home groups to sign up as well. RSVP by clicking your preferred date below.

Experiencing Solitude

Mt. Rainier

God’s Majesty

Last weekend Pastor Tony led a group of leaders on The Silent Wild at Mt. Rainier. The day was gorgeous! They saw a bear, a mountain goat, and most importantly, everyone on the outing spent time in solitude with God.

The experience unplugging and spending time in solitude was peaceful and inspirational. So much so that each is planning a similar outing within individual home groups. If you’d like information on leading your home group on a solitude experience, contact me for some ideas by emailing sarah@lighthousehome.org.

Ah, a retreat!

Hey Group Leaders!  All of us need space to slow down in the presence of God.  Join me on August 8th at Mt Rainer.
