Via de Cristo
(The Way of Christ)
Several Zionites (including Pastor Tibbetts) participate in the Heart of Illinois Via de Cristo, which begins with a highly-structured 3-day weekend (Thursday evening through Sunday evening) designed to strengthen and renew your Christian faith and bring you to a new awareness of living the rest of your life (the "Fourth Day") in God's grace. After the weekend one's Fourth Day includes participation in a small "group reunion" (usually weekly) and the monthly Ultreya for the entire community. A combined effort of laity and clergy toward renewal of the church and the development of Christian leaders, Via de Cristo is a Lutheran expression of the Catholic Cursillo movement that is, here in the Heart of Illinois, open to any adult Christian.
Since 1998 the Heart of Illinois Via de Cristo has offered weekends each year at East Bay Camp, Lake Bloomington, Illinois. The most recent weekend was in April 2016. An Ultreya is held the second Saturday of most months, and will meet at several area churches (including Zion) over the course of each year. For the latest information please contact the Heart of Illinois Via De Cristo or click the national Via de Cristo link to learn about the movement near you.
