Joy in Returning: A Lenten Retreat: April 3-6, 2025

Location: Emery House in West Newbury
Thursday 5:00 pm – Sunday 2:00 pm, April 3-6, 2025
Leader: Brs. Luke Ditewig & Jamie Nelson

Lent is a clearing season for repentance and returning to God. Though it can challenge us, God delights in our return. Come pray with hope and joy on the journey to Holy Week 

We will spend time together attending to God with our more-than-human neighbors. Come ready to walk, listen, and serve out on fields, in the woods, and at the river. Weather-permitting, some worship will be outside. Care by removing trash from the riverbank or other projects


We strive to make retreat time available to all who seek it, and so the suggested fees cover only a portion of the expenses for making our facilities available. As such, we are always grateful for any additional donations in support of our retreat ministry.

$465.00 per person for this program retreat
$225.00 for students/young adults

Suggested fees can be reduced in cases of financial hardship.

Reservations are confirmed only upon receipt of a deposit equal to 50% of your total fee.

We ask that you request only one retreat per year to allow everyone the opportunity to share in our ministry. Thank you.
