Learn to shape your life around the good news in a restful, helpful, and enjoyable retreat. Grace, salvation, and faith are three words full of hope and practical implications for our everyday decisions, although our understanding of them has been emptied of much of the meaning given to them in the Scriptures. This initial retreat in our series with the Spiritual Formation Center of First United Methodist Church of Midland, Texas will expand your view of these three terms so central to Christian beliefs.

Please contact Daniel Harris with any questions.

Comments from previous participants:

  • "All three sessions worked off of each other. In some ways, I'm hearing the 'Good News' for the first time: we can experience eternal life and live/participate in God's kingdom right now!"

  • "I went away with curiosity and desire to study and investigate more about grace, salvation and faith and how they interact in my life."

  • "I am looking forward to going back to San Angelo for the next retreat! I always enjoy them–the relaxing pace and the quiet."

Further details:

  • Registration is $85 per person.

  • The retreat will begin with dinner on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and conclude at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

  • Transportation is available from First United Methodist Church of Midland.

  • Registration cost includes materials, lodging, and meals.

  • Each retreat attendee will have a private room and bathroom.
