Church plans

Seaside Escape

Martinsville Bible Church is planning a SeaSide Escape for women from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 16. The Bible-based program uses imagery of the beach to create a retreat experience that’s relaxing and peaceful.

It’s designed to be an excursion into Biblical truths that refreshes, reinvigorates and reconnects women with God and each other.

Organizers are bringing the beach to the church. SeaSide Escape is seven sessions broken into segments of worship, teaching, activities, reflection and service. During the retreat, women will use items typically found at the beach as metaphors for what they’re learning. Most sessions include worship and Bible studies focusing on the story of Sarah and Hagar from Genesis.

The registration fee is $15 and will cover the cost of meals, journal, study materials and craft supplies. Deadline to register is Nov. 10.

St. Mary-of-the-Woods

Register now

for retreat

“A Retreat in Daily Life,” a nine-month focus on everyday prayer for people of all faith traditions, will be offered by Sister Mary Moloney of the Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods beginning in October.

The retreat is based on the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius. Sister Mary led the retreat for the past 15 years where she previously ministered in Oklahoma. She has added an Earth dimension to the retreat, which requires participants to set aside one hour a day for prayer, meet with a group for an hour and a half once each week and meet twice a month with a spiritual director.

This opportunity offers participants a chance “to grow in prayer, get back to the basics of individual spirituality and understand God’s creation as an integral part of prayer life,” Moloney said. “It is a way for busy people to grow more deeply in their relationship with and commitment to Jesus.”

Persons who seek greater inner freedom; deep, abiding peace; a renewed sense of purpose, direction and meaning; a thirst for justice and peace; and a desire to serve others will benefit from this retreat, Moloney said.     

Moloney has served as a spiritual director and hospital chaplain. Persons interested in learning more about the retreat can contact Moloney at, or at 405-202-4350 or 812-535-4334.

The registration deadline is Sept. 1. Cost is $60 per month, plus a one-time fee of $40 for supplies.
