Spiritual Retreats at the Center

ALCthegroundsSpiritual retreats at The Center offer the opportunity to take a break from the busy-ness of life, giving us time and space to open up to Spirit through the practice of silence, reflection and shared intentional conversation.

No prior retreat experience necessary at Center retreats, only a willingness to set this time aside for God in a beautiful setting with other other intentional participants. All denominations and faith traditions welcome.

If you would like to be informed of our next retreat at the Center, please sign up by e-mailing Nathan LeRud or calling 503-478-1211.
