Welcome - Join us at the Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village for this in-person event.

For many the disruption of this pandemic season has felt like the world has been flipped upside down. The collective turmoil we’ve experienced may have caused some of us to question our sense of vocation or call. Arche is the Greek word for “beginning.” As we begin a new school year in a post-pandemic world we invite you to consider: how might God want to renew your vision for why you are in graduate school? As we begin to come out of a season largely marked by weeping, what seeds of hope does God have for us and for our world?

Join graduate students from universities in the New York Metro Area for a one day fall retreat as we rediscover what it means to be “those who dream.”

Our time will be guided by Psalm 126 and much of the day will be a workshop exploring how our story at grad school and beyond can fit into God’s grand narrative of creation, fall and redemption. As with many of our schools' regulations, masks will be required indoors.

September 25th 9:30am-5:30pm Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village 269 Bleecker St
