Uniting Together: Many Gifts, One Spirit

The United Methodist Women of the Central Valley District enjoyed their annual retreat at the Episcopal Conference Center Oakhurst (ECCO) on March 9 – 11, 2018. For the past year, numerous women from throughout the district volunteered to be part of the team to plan, staff, and facilitate this amazing retreat. Over sixty women enjoyed three days of spiritual growth, community-building, excellent food, good fun, and lots and lots of singing all in the fresh, mountain air.

The group of ten women from Wesley UMC was recognized for having the most women in attendance from one church. Feel free to ask them to share about their experiences. Mark your calendar to attend the next retreat in 2019. And don’t let money be an issue – there are always scholarships available!

You’ll be glad you did!
