Adam and Eve Retreats
April 26-28, 2019
Cost: $50 (please contact Dwayne for financial assistance)
Theme: Becoming
Location: Camp Alta Mons (near Roanoke)
How do you become the woman or man of God that God intends for you to be? Recognize, Release, Receive, Believe, Rest, and Become. The Adam and Eve retreats will focus on becoming, and how we must let go of the false identities we hold on to, or that are forced on us, so we can claim the identity God has for us.  The retreat will include reflection, hiking, high ropes, and opportunities to share and grow with others. Both retreats happen simultaneously but remain completely separate. To register, click HERE and remit payment (payable to Shady Grove UMC) to Dwayne in the church office by April 14.
