Group Spiritual Direction Invitation Spring 2020


Group Spiritual Direction is an opportunity to explore and enhance our Spiritual journeys together in connection with the Divine Presence of the Holy Spirit.

Spiritual Direction is a unique opportunity for those who desire more of God, who want a deepened relationship with Him and a keener sense of His presence.

It is an informal process of prayer, contemplation and sharing led by a Spiritual Director that facilitates this work. 

It is not necessary to have specific questions or problems, just a desire for God, a keen interest to explore and a willingness to share.


Our group size of 4-6 will meet once a week on a day and time to be determined (usually in early afternoon for 90 minutes) in the Pastor’s study at the Federated Church in Sunrise Beach. (Time and date may be adjusted to meet the needs of the group).

The program will run for 12 weeks from the first week in Mar to the third week in May.  Participants will be selected on a first come, first served basis.

There will be no charge for the program.



Fred Butler will facilitate the group as Spiritual Director.
