Annually each summer we gather together as a community to deepen our relationships with one another and to truly appreciate the spiritual journey we are on individually and collectively.

For many years we have gathered in the home of Associate Minister, Linda Stern in Richmond Beach. Linda is a wonderful host. Each year for several years we have created a communal art piece, one that represents our experiences together. Many of these art pieces grace our Sanctuary.

The Interfaith Community Sanctuary Member's Spiritual Retreat is for members of ICS. If you are not yet a member and would like to commit to our community, please let us know in person on your next visit.
