Mount Olivet Conference & Retreat Center
Women's Weekend 1/29-1/31
Just like a decluttered house brings a sense of order and calm, a decluttered soul can open up mental, emotional, and spiritual space. What clutters the soul? It can be too much “stuff”—so much that simply keeping it organized and under control robs you of the energy and time you need to just “be.”  All are welcome—members and non-members alike!
Deepening Your Spiritual Roots 2/26-2/28
What does the phrase “spiritual practice” mean to you?  What practices connect you to God in this chapter of your life?  What habits might you want to release in order to make space to receive God?
