Spiritual Direction Small Group: An invitation to Rest

 Join us for a Healing Place Event


Tuesday, September 28, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Event Information

Many people ask, "What is Spiritual Direction"?

The answer is simple. In seasons of challenge and change, Spiritual Direction can help you discern, provide spiritual insight, and help you discover practical steps to take as you navigate the seasons of challenge and change. Christian spiritual direction is about helping you discover God's movement in you life, and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship of love, freedom, meaning and commitment.  Spiritual tools and practices will be introduced in the group to help participants slow down, listen and be attentive to God's presence and action.

This group will be offered in-person at the First Shiloh Baptist Church located at 8150 Walnut Grove Road, Mechanicsville VA.

Our small groups are facilitated by caregivers trained in formational prayer and our spiritual direction group is led by a trained spiritual director. We invite you to register today for one of the small groups we will offer beginning the last week of September 2021!

The registration fee for this group is $35.00. The participation fee is $25.00 per week. Payment options include:
