Silent Sanctuary Retreats 2017

Silent Retreat

Consider joining us for a time set aside to step back from life challenges, seek God and listen to His voice...

"The LORD is good to those who wait for Him,
To the person who searches for Him.
It is good to hope and wait patiently for
The LORD'S SALVATION. -Lamentations 3:25-26

Black Rock Retreat is once again providing an opportunity for us to spend some peaceful moments focusing solely on our relationship with God and hearing His voice. The Silent Sanctuary Retreat offers time, space and resources for guests to commune with God in this beautiful setting.

2016-2017 Silent Sanctuary Brochure
Silent Retreat

"Be silent and I will teach you wisdom." (Job 33:31)

Held in the lovely and comfortable Maranatha Retreat Center, the Silent Sanctuary Retreat will include extended hours of silence with optional resources for you to make the most of your time with God such as prayer stations, handouts, music and art areas and an evening prayer walk with a campfire. Included in the weekend is an optional "Creative Journaling Session" led by local artist Priscilla Williams. Black Rock Retreat is the perfect location for guests to see God's handiwork as they meander along the trails or sit on the deck or enjoy the warmth of a fireplace. New this season is a Prayer Labyrinth for all guests to "walk the path".

Priscilla Williams

Special Guest Artist - Priscilla Williams

Priscilla Williams has a B.S. in Art Education and Master's of Divinity degrees. Throughout the 25 years of pastoral ministry Priscilla has always been on a journey to find how art and communing with God come together. The places of greatest revelation in this union are in the wilderness times and seasons, when the Shepherd takes us so deep into our hearts that goes way beyond words. (Even one who paints with words can testify to this place.) Art is the language for heart to heart connections. Glory Gazing Ministries, Priscilla's ministry, is all about helping people discover such connections with God through the arts. See
