Lighthouse Via de Cristo is…
…a local inter-denominational ministry, designed to assist disciples of Jesus to renew and deepen their faith and to provide some time proven means to become more effective Christian apostles. “Via de Cristo ” is a Spanish expression, which literally means “Way of Christ”. The “Lighthouse” represents both Christ’s words, “I am the Light of the World” and our location on the shores of Ponce Inlet where a lighthouse has stood to assist travelers since the last century.
All activity during a Lighthouse Via de Cristo weekend is done with the express intention of being a means through which the Holy Spirit can work more effectively in the lives of the participants. Many who have attended such a weekend state they have never felt so much love at any time or place before in their entire life. We are all aware of the healing, transforming power of love ~ so do yourself a great kindness.
What is a Via de Cristo Weekend?
Your weekend begins on a Thursday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon. Our time together is highly structured and designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them, their families, congregations and the environment which they live, work and play. It is a combined effort of laity and clergy working together to bring renewal to the Church by taking a New Testament look at Christianity as a life-style. While you are attending you will spend 3 busy ~ but very enjoyable days ~ living and studying together with much singing, prayer, worship and discussions. Discussions center around a series of talks given by both laity and clergy, regarding:
- The Grace of God
- The Reality of Grace in Our Lives
- We Can Live the Live of Grace
- Ways We Can Impact Grace to Others
