WNCC United Methodist Women 2020 Spiritual Retreat to be held virtually

 

For Such a Time as This, the Western North Carolina Conference United Methodist Women Spiritual Growth Virtual Retreat 2020 is coming to you online June 12-14.

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.

Visit our website at: www.wnccumw.org for updates.

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!
