Upcoming Event Highlights


 Confirmation Retreats at Camp Glisson
     The confirmation retreats, held February 17-19 and Feb 24-26, are designed primarily for 6th-8th graders, but can include senior high students if they have not yet been confirmed. The goal is to enhance the confirmation experience of churches that might not have their own confirmation retreat for those young people who are learning more about what it means to follow Christ and to make a profession of faith. It will be a weekend of learning from a variety of educational experiences and presentations by leaders in the conference, inspiring worship, some fun and games, and times for the youth to reflect on their faith and their desire to follow Christ and join the United Methodist Church. To register, please visit www.ngumc.org/confirmation. For more information, contact Meg Morrison atmmorrison@ngumc.org. Early registration ends Dec. 15.
 Spiritual Life Retreats at Camp Glisson
     “B-On Fire,” is the theme of the weekends (March 2-4, 9-11, 16-18, 23-25) and will be our torch as we explore how to keep the smoldering coals of the Holy Spirit burning within us. The theme is based on Luke 24:32 – "And they said one to another, Did not our hearts burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened us to the Scriptures?" The weekends are stocked full of spiritual kindling that will help spark a scorching passion in you and your youth group’s faith journeys. Worship, small groups, fun and games, experiential activities and much more will get you “fired up” as you join in building a lasting “B-On Fire” with other youth groups from across the conference.  After the Early Bird registration time frame, the cost is $130.  To register, please visit www.ngumc.org/slr. For more information, contact Meg Morrison at mmorrison@ngumc.org. Early registration ends Dec. 15.
