 Consider going on retreat…without ever leaving your home!

We gather on the Saturday mornings in Lent from 9:00 to 9:30 am on Zoom
for a spiritual talk and fellowship.
 
Please contact Pastor Kent at umcbpastor@gmail.com for the Zoom meeting info if you would like to be part of the online retreat.

Each week everyone is provided with a Scripture verse, a reflection and a
prayer exercise for each day Monday to Friday.

This retreat is meant and designed for busy people! All that is required is a
commitment to at least 15 minutes of intentional and concerted prayer time,
and a heart wide open and ready to receive what God wants for your life.
 
Our first gathering will be Saturday, February 13th, where we will learn how
to be on retreat online and to explain how our prayer times will work
beginning with Ash Wednesday, February 17th.

Our Retreat: “A Way Other Than Our Own” is a five week walk toward
deepening our spiritual life and our friendship with God.

All you need is a Bible, a pen, a journal, and a heart wide open!

There is no cost to be part of this retreat…only gain!

Our church community has been so very generous with regards to our outreach ministries.
 
There is such a need…more than ever to help our neighbors and those less fortunate.  People forced to ask for a handout to feed themselves and take care of their families.
 
We would love to put together more Blessing Bags.
 
Last time, we were able to put together 35 bags to hand out. Once again, we are asking for your help gathering the supplies needed to make more Blessing Bags!
 
These bags can be a blessing to someone in need! Please prayerfully consider donating.
