Equipped and Encouraged

Invest a weekend (or a few) in your faith and find a fulfilling home for yourself in the ministry of the church.  We would like you to consider these two great programs which will leave you feeling equipped and encouraged: the Walk to Emmaus and the School for Lay Ministry.  You don’t have to be a superhero or church-overachiever to take part – you just have to be interested in moving forward as an intentional, faithful Christian.  The Walk to Emmaus is a long weekend retreat in a comfortable setting, with supportive folks guiding you through a crash-course in new-testament Christianity.  The School for Lay Ministry is a course of study (4 weekends a year for 3 years) that covers all aspects of our United Methodist theology, structure and mission.  Please consider one or both of these resources which can renew your faith and boost your Christian confidence.
