Please join us for ECV’s third Annual Spiritual Formation Day! It is on Saturday, April 8th, from 9:30a to 4:30p.

The event will continue after lunch from 1:30 – 4:30p and will include childcare. As far as cost, you will see that there are four main options: A ticket that includes lunch for adults ($15) A ticket without lunch for adults (this option is useful if you cannot stay with us for lunch) ($10) A ticket for a kid ($5); lunch is included A student ticket that includes lunch. ($10) If you have any questions, ask Laura@elmcityvineyard.org. Bill Elander, the Pastor of New Haven Vineyard, and his wife Lanie Elander, co-planter, will lead us in our day together. They have led numerous spiritual retreats and have been great partners and friends with ECV. What Is Spiritual Formation? Spiritual Formation is the intentional pursuit to become more like Christ through our lifestyle and through a set of practices. Spiritual formation is always happening. It is simply a question of “How is your spirit currently being formed?” Why Is It Needed? Our lives are overun with activities, busyness, relationships, work, and more. None of these things are outright bad, but they can clutter our lives and leave us unable to answer the question, “How is your soul?” Spiritual formation aims to de-clutter our lives in order to see what remains when we are able to sit with ourselves and God. How Is It Connected to Lent? Our Lenten theme this year is ‘Take The Loss.’ In this season we want to lean into the habit of taking the loss like Jesus. Maybe you’ll take the loss by being wronged and choosing grace over rebuttal. Perhaps you take the loss by giving away money, power, time, or status. In all this, we hope to grow as a community in obedience to Jesus, the pursuit of humility, and engagement in spiritual risk. Often losses come from prioritizing these parts of our life with Jesus.
