WNCC United Methodist Women 2020 Spiritual Retreat to be held virtually
You’ll recognize familiar elements from our traditional retreats at Lake Junaluska—inspiring and challenging messages from Rev. Pam Blackstock, Rev. Dr. Suzanne Michael, and Rev. Lisa Beth White, information about “where the money goes”, uplifting music provided by Catherine Ritch and Rev. Dr. Mark Barden, and more. “God’s Word is not chained” (or kept at home), and United Methodist Women members will join in spirit three times during the weekend:
Session 1: June 12th, 7:00pm
Session 2: June 13th, 2:00pm
Session 3: June 14th, 2:00pm
Three recorded sessions will appear on the WNCC-UMW Facebook page, website, and YouTube page. You will be able to watch the sessions at the appointed times, or any time after that. The videos will continue to be available, and would make a great virtual program for your local United Methodist Women group.

Through pandemic and protests, the United Methodist Women of Western North Carolina are gathering to reflect on our calling “For Such a Time as This”. Please join us!

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
