Sometimes, you just need a reboot.
A retreat allows you to step back, restore your spiritual bearings and refresh your faith. It is a joyful, loving experience. You receive support and inspiration from others as you focus on God, His plans for you and how you will respond to His call. It’s also an opportunity for you to share your joy and lift the spirits of other participants.
Too often, daily distractions may get in the way of your relationship with God. Retreats provide you with uninterrupted time for prayer, for meditation, for worship and for counsel as you try to discern what God is calling you to do and who He wants you to be.
Retreats help you realize you are not alone. You journey together with other brothers and sisters in Christ who want to be there for you. As you share stories of faith and recount trials and hardships that have made life difficult, you also come to recognize the love that is all around you. A retreat helps you find strength to meet the challenges ahead.
Whether for a weekend, a day or just a few hours, retreats make room for you to experience God in all His glory and love. As you open yourself up to His real presence in your life, you better appreciate the salvation Jesus won for you. Retreats allow you to empty yourself of all your worries and be filled instead with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
A retreat experience can have a profound impact on your outlook on life. That’s why AIM works to make retreats accessible to all. We all deserve a chance to renew our faith, recharge our spirit, encounter Christ and be immersed in love and joy.
Give yourself a gift. Take part in a retreat. See what God has done for you. Ask what you can do for Him.
