What is a day reFresh?

Come enjoy unhurried space with the Lord in a beautiful setting with space to wander, nooks in which to write and reflect, spaces in which to let God’s Love and Beauty catch up to your soul.

  • A day with a rhythm of worship and rest with no need to take care of anyone else.

  • A day to break the breakneck speeds of life and take deep breaths to recenter your soul.

  • A day to replenish your heart toward wonder and gratefulness.

  • A day to pay attention, come to God, and listen so your soul may become more fully alive (Is. 55:3)

These are a few of the things that over 100 people who have attended reFresh have said about their investment into taking a reFreshing soul retreat.
