Spring worship planning retreats to be held in Wyoming, Colorado

This winter has been a rough one for many pastors, especially in The United Methodist Church. Between constantly-breaking political news and the conflict of General Conference, not to mention a “bomb cyclone” of rain, wind, and snow for much of the Mountain Sky region last week, the wilderness of Lent seems to be upon us in some very real and challenging ways.

Now is the perfect time to plan a day away from your weekly routine to take a deep breath, connect with God and with colleagues, and be inspired for future seasons of worship in your setting.

The Rev. Kerry Greenhill will be leading day-long worship planning retreats for pastors to gather with colleagues, engage in prayer and reflection, receive tools and resources for making worship even more lively and meaningful in your setting, and dive deep into the Scriptures to plan ahead for a series or season. The retreats will be held on March 28 at Grace UMC in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and April 4 at Scott UMC in Denver, Colorado.

Each retreat starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Cost is $60 per person, with group discounts for churches that bring multiple people. Lunch options vary depending on location. Please contact Kerry at Kerry@SacredStonesMinistries.org to make special arrangements or requests.

A certificate of participation will be provided for those who desire documentation of continuing education or professional formation events. 

Registration closes the Friday before each event, so don’t delay – sign up today!
