You're invited to take part in LIFE, the Lifelong Learner Institute of Faith Exploration. LIFE retreats take place five times a year on the Eden campus and provide participants with a more comprehensive way to explore their faith.
LIFE (Lifelong Learner Institute of Faith Exploration) is a program of retreats that invites lay men and women to study scripture and explore Christian faith and life. It challenges participants to become life long learners and disciples, faithful witnesses to the gospel and faithful members and leaders of the church. LIFE is sponsored jointly by the Missouri Mid-South Conference, the Illinois South Conference and Eden Theological Seminary (all United Church of Christ) with participants coming from many different denominations and faith traditions.
This year's fall retreat courses are:
Telling and Living the Story of Faith and Justice by Dr. Leah Gunning Francis
New Ways to Use the Bible in Worship by Rev. Dan Borchers
