The initial retreat in our series with the Spiritual Formation Center of First United Methodist Church of Midland, Texas will be a surprising look at three central Christian beliefs: grace, salvation, and faith. The retreat experience will allow you to reframe these beliefs in your mind and experience their reality in a restful, helpful, and enjoyable context. 

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."
