Enneagram Workshop
Apr

9:00 AM09:00

Enneagram Workshop

The Enneagram has been increasingly recognized as a helpful tool for self-awareness and discipleship, with roots in Christian spiritual theology. More than a personality test that describes our strengths and weaknesses, the Enneagram examines the virtues, motivators, defense mechanisms, and "deadly sins" that lie underneath the surface. This workshop presents a distinctly Christian approach to using the Enneagram for discipleship. A portion of the workshop will be spent introducing the Enneagram through a biblical and theological lens. Each registrant will take an online WEPSS Enneagram assessment in advance of the workshop. With detailed and personalized results in hand, we'll spend the morning together exploring the self-discovery insights offered by this ancient tool.

Cost:
$49.00 - includes the cost of 1 WEPSS Enneagram Profile that is taken online. All proceeds support the ministry of Leadership Transformations. Lunch is not included, but we will provide coffee and snacks. Space is limited to 45 participants.

This Month, on Saturday 4/28/18, at 7pm, G2G is hosting a game night that is all about the ‘good ol’ days’ when all you needed was a deck of cards and some friends to have fun. No boring boards or unruly rules. Just cards, chips, and maybe some spoons. So come on by and bring your favorite nostalgic card games, snacks, and friends for a night of runs and flushes (no toilet jokes involved).

Onramp

If you've recently started coming to Access, we'd like to invite you to our quarterly Onramp Newcomer's lunch on April 29th @ 12:00 AM - 1:30 PM.  Onramp is a casual and fun way for us to introduce people newer to Access to what we're about and give folks a chance to connect with other people in our community.  We know that plugging into a church can be pretty daunting, so our hope is that this would help make that transition a little bit easier. 

Please RSVP below for lunch.

Beside Still Waters: A Soul Care Retreat
Feb
27
to Feb 28

Beside Still Waters: A Soul Care Retreat

Join us for a one-night soul care retreat of being quiet in the presence of Jesus. Not too long ago, Houston was deluged by the raging waters of Hurricane Harvey. The recovery process has been ongoing, not just physically in our city, but also emotionally and spiritually. We need the voice of Jesus, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest" (Matthew 11:28). In spacious places, find a spot for individual silence and reflection. This is a gift of rest and communion with God and one another. 

The retreat begins at 9AM Tuesday and concludes at 1PM Wednesday and will include small group sharing, worship, fellowship, teaching, prayer, and spacious times in silence and solitude. It is designed to provide a spiritually enriching environment focused on spiritual formation, discernment, and renewal.
