A S.P.R.I.N.G. Themed Retreat

By Alexis

Spring has finally sprung! And you know what that means, retreat season is here! With that being said, do you have a theme for your upcoming retreat? If not, don’t worry. We have an idea that we are sure you are going to love!

What if you use spring as your theme? Yes, I said spring! Although, instead of the season, turn the word into an acronym. Each letter can then be used as a subtheme for your worship services. How? Open up your Bible. Find a theme in the Bible that starts with each letter. Then, begin looking through God’s word for versus that correspond with your subtheme. For example:

S: Strength

Corresponding Bible verses to choose from: Isaiah 40:31; Philippians 4:13; Deuteronomy 31:6; 1 Chronicles 16:11

P: Peace

Corresponding Bible verses to choose from: 1 Peter 5:7; John 16:33

R: Repentance

Corresponding Bible verse: Luke 5:31-32

I: Impatience

Corresponding Bible verses to choose from: Proverbs 14:29; Proverbs 16:32

N: New Life

Corresponding Bible verses to choose from: Romans 6:4; 1 Peter 1:3

G: Grace

Corresponding Bible verses to choose from: Ephesians 1:7-8; Romans 6:14; Ephesians 2:8-9

You could even take it a step further and select your worship music after each subtheme! Whatever you decided to do, your guests will love this biblical spin on the word spring.

Whether your retreat is two days or six days long, you can easily use this theme for your upcoming retreat. So, what are you waiting for? “Spring” into action and start planning your themed event today!
