circle prayerKnowing God Through Prayer with Ginger Ciminello

The guilt often sets in: “I know I should pray much more than I do and I often feel as though everyone else prays more and enjoys it more than I do.” God invites us to pray. Jesus demonstrates how to pray. If prayer is something worth doing, then it is worth practicing. In this session, we aren’t seeking perfection, but rather avenues of communication with our Father. Join Ginger as you discover and practice various forms of prayer including prayer walks, praying in color, Lectino Divina, notecards, groups, journals, and much more.

 

Art CircleKnowing God Through Art  with Carey Bailey

As a recovering perfectionist, Carey will share her story of shredding the desire for a perfect life by teaching herself how to rest in the raw and real of God through art. In this breakout session she is inviting you to get your hands dirty! You will use paint, stamps, and paper to create cards that will serve as daily reminders for God’s truth in your life. No art experience is needed – we promise! Come, play, experiment, and discover what it looks like to enjoy the process of creating with freedom.

If we are not careful, the beauty and vastness of the world surrounding us can become a blur. It can easily be covered up by to-do lists and expectations. Using her gifting as an artist and avid adventurer, Sarah will assist you in slowing down the pace as you discover God’s handiwork in the gifts around you. Bring your camera and capture the details of His creation in nature. No photography experience is needed. Hiking boots or tennis shoes are encouraged.
