COME ASIDE and REST a WHILE! White House Retreat

Look for the display in church (in the main vestibule). Make your firm reservation now, time is running out. Peace, My Gift For You!

The LORD invites us to spend time with Him, but our busy lives can get in the way. The Savior’s words of long ago call out to us today. But there will always be one more thing to do, another pressing need that pushes Him out of view.

So ‘come with me and rest a while’, the invitation is there for everyone, even those with no time to spare.   It may seem like a sacrifice, of time we can’t afford, but not a moment is wasted when that time is spent with the Lord.

The Lord’s gift of peace is waiting for you at the White House Retreat, just off Christopher Road, overlooking the Mississippi River. The retreat experience is presented in a format intended to deepen our spiritual outlook and to help us to manage the stress and doubts of everyday life. Here you will discover a basis for a richer, fuller, faith-centered tomorrow.



Please check the Women’s retreat schedule on the bulletin board in the vestibule and make your personal retreat according to your busy life.
