Forest Walk Retreat @ Morton Arboretum

Saturday, October 14 - 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of God's hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. Psalm 19: 1-2

Forest Walk

     Come away for a mini-retreat so your spirit might both delight in the handiwork of our Creator God & listen for what God has to say to you through quiet time in nature. This retreat will be held at Morton Arboretum, Lisle on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 9:30am-12:30pm (takes place rain or shine, so dress accordingly). The cost will be $15 per person and will be led by Brenda Spitzer, Certified Forest Therapy Guide.
     We will be outside the whole three hours, slowly meandering over a variety of surfaces and walking a bit more than a mile. The morning will be interspersed with times of reflection and periods of sitting on the ground for contemplation. If interested, register with Pastor Jennifer by Tuesday, Sept. 26th.

Sunday Mornings

Yorkfield puts a serious emphasis on adult education and always provides Adult classes during the Sunday morning education hour (10:15-11:05) September – May. 


Education opportunities are also available through many of our Small Groups

Over four weeks, we will explore the life, writings, and influence of the Apostle Paul. From his dramatic conversion from a persecutor to a preacher, then tracing Paul's extensive travels and a book by book review of his teachings, we will explore and understand the role of Pauline theology on Christians through the ages. 


Rough Overview:

Week 1 - Paul the globetrotter (his story, travels, era in which he lived, etc)

Week 2 - Prolific Paul Part 1 (overview of his audiences and letters, debating authorship, and summary of a few epistles)

Week 3 - Prolific Paul Part 2 (the rest of the epistles)

Week 4 - Paul's Place in Faith (summary of theology themes from letters, comparisons with the teachings of Jesus)
