Transformation: From the Inside, Out

6:00pm - 4:00pm / Sanctuary

POSTPONED (1/4/17)

Due to weather concerns, the retreat has been postponed. We will be talking with the retreat center over the next week to try and find a weekend that works. For those that have registered, we hope you will be able to join us when we reschedule; your registration fee will transfer to that future date. If there is a conflict for you, of course, we will reimburse you. Please emal Christina at if you have any questions.


On any given day, our soul savors rituals for renewal. So that the headlines in the news or the headlines in our families don’t steer us. Each time we come to prayer or spiritual practices, our thoughts and spirit are transformed.

We hope you will join us for Middle Church’s 10th Annual Spiritual Retreat: Transformation from the Inside Out, upstate at the Stony Point Center Friday, January 5 – Sunday, January 7.
We will gather to be nourished by spiritual practices and spiritual community. We will be reflecting on Romans 12: 1-8. One of the famous lines of this text in the NRSV is: “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Our senior minister, Jacqui Lewis, and the consistory invite you to deepen our connections to one another and deepen our spiritual lives.

The registration fee includes round-trip bus transport from Middle Church to Stony Point Center in Rockland County, New York, lodging for two nights, and meals on Saturday and Sunday made from scratch in the Stony Point Kitchens. Rooms are double occupancy, with two twin beds in most rooms.

On Friday, January 5, participants will gather at Middle Church (50 E. 7th Street) at 6 pm and the bus will leave promptly at 6:30 pm. We will return to Middle Church on Sunday, January 7 at 4:00 pm.

This year's annual spiritual retreat will be led by Rev. Hershey Mallette Stephens, Rob Stephens and Christina Fleming.

Registration is now closed.

Registration is $350 this year. (The lodging and bus costs increased this year.) You also have the opportunity to sponsor others to attend through full scholarships and donations. And there is an option at registration to pay in three installments of $116.66. Please register by Sunday, December 3.
