When you hear “never give a sword to a man that can’t dance” do you feel a pull to both dance and fight? Have you ever wondered what in the world is happening in the corner with all the flags, ribbons, and dancing during worship? Have you been asking God for a way to feel closer to Him? We will explore what praise and worship looks like in the Bible, and allow the Holy Spirit to lead us in practice to expand our worship vocabulary. No dance experience necessary. Snacks provided! Contact Safinia (email@example.com) or JoAnn (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.

"Carpe Diem: Building Your Bluewater Life"
Powerful life needs a powerful lifestyle.
The Bluewater community tries hard to provide a culture that empowers Godly faith and purpose for every individual. We’ve learned a lot about what it takes, and one thing that’s always required is a very intentional approach to daily living. People sometimes get stuck between their spiritual desires and their practical life. They trust God and long for growth and impact, but they don’t see much happening day to day.
A purposeful day doesn’t just happen; it gets built. It’s a matter of clarity, priorities and practical methods. God calls; we build our days artfully around his calling. Trust just needs a method. So, how do you get into the Spirit and stoke faith each morning? How do you inject purpose into your work hours? What’s the best way to ensure progress in the things that count? What secures harvest? How does a good day end? Spiritual things made practical, and practical things of great spiritual importance.
The All-Church Retreat will be filled with fellowship, worship, prophetic ministry, teaching and rest. It will also be a time to clarify and update your lifestyle with God.
Registration for the All Church Retreat is now closed. See you there!
