Beloved. Still.
August 23-26

St. Cyprian of Carthage once wrote, “No one can have God for their Father who does not have the Church for their mother.” At a time when many are disenchanted, alienated, or wounded by the church, this statement may be painful. Many who feel pushed out by the church experience guilt and shame because of lost rhythms, lost relationships, lost connection to the church, and perhaps, distance from God.


This retreat is designed to create space and rest by engaging spiritual practices, inviting conversations, and making connections while processing relationships to the church. But more importantly, this is a space to remember that no matter what, we are beloved. Still.


Your hosts and guides for this event will be Nate and Sarah Pyle. They have been involved in ministry for nearly 20 years as youth pastor, pastor, coaches, retreat facilitators and teachers. Nate is the pastor of Christ's Community Church in Fishers. He is also an author of two books and has written for a number of publications. Additionally, he is a coach with The Leader's Journey, a coaching organization helping leaders grow in wholehearted leadership. Sarah is also involved in ministry at Christ's Community Church and has overseen marriage ministry at the church. They enjoy creating hospitable spaces for people to explore their faith, ask deep questions, and feel God's love.


Retreat begins at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 23rd and ends at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday August 26th. Meals, coffee and snacks included.
