We have a great time planning and carrying out these powerful retreats. If you're interested in serving on the
volunteer staff for any of these retreats, apply here.
There are various opportunities for your group to experience a different styles of worship within your district. These opportunities are available throughout the year (from October through April). You are more than welcome to set up your own visits to other congregations. Keep in mind that it sometimes helps if the pastors of these churches know that they will be having visitors on a particular day. As you take your group to visit another congregation, let us know how it goes by dropping us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Spring Confirmation Retreat has been a formidable part of the confirmation experience for hundreds of youth for years, and we hope you and your group will consider registering for this year's retreat to be held at Glisson Camp and Retreat Center on March 3-5, 2017. During the weekend your youth will focus on the vow they will soon make when joining the church - supporting the church with their prayers, their presence, their gifts, and their service. They will also learn about the unique blessings of being United Methodist and what it means to be a part of a connectional church.
The weekend retreat setting is powerful in that your youth will build stronger ties to each other and to your adults who participate. Worship, dynamic speakers and teachers, games, meaningful instruction, music, small groups, and a diverse group of youth from all over the conference will be enjoyed on this retreat weekend.
Cost for the retreat is $125 if you register and pay by January 15th. After that date the cost goes up to $145. This covers supplies, housing, four meals, and some great worship and learning.
