Leadership & Formation Events
THE WAY OF THE CROSS – A Personal Retreat for Holy Week – April 2020 – Since we had to cancel our April retreat because of the coronavirus, we decided to share a free resource so that people could have a retreat on their own. We hope that this guide will help you reflect on the cross of Christ and what it means for both your salvation and your formation. It is a modern take on stations of the cross – with artwork, scriptures, prayers and times for silence and reflection. It can be done any time during Holy Week, but it may be most meaningful on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, or Silent Saturday. If you think others would enjoy this resource then feel free to share it with them. It is our hope and prayer that God will draw near to us as we draw near to Him during Holy Week.

The Soul of Shame – A Seminar with Dr. Curt Thompson – March 17, 2018 at West End Presbyterian Church –Curt will lead us through the theological and practical tools necessary to understand shame and how the Gospel overcomes the painful power of shame in our lives. Pulling from concepts in his book, The Soul of Shame, Curt will examine how our shame keeps us from being engaged in relationships, community, church, and vocation. He’ll encourage us to find freedom in Christ by learning the truth about who He is and who we are as His redeemed people. This is a free event and with no registration required. Compass Center is co-sponsor of this event wth West End Presbyterian Church, Third Church, Schole House and the Barnabas Center.
