This year’s spiritual retreat will offer a community of diverse fellowship, dynamic spiritual worship services, Morning Watch and entertainment from the Limitless Team. In addition, there will be a devotional spiritual walk along the flowery trails of the lakeshore. This walk will be spiritually engaging as we walk through God’s handcrafted mountains, singing his praises, and allowing his peace to come upon us.

The theme for this year’s retreat is “One In Charity,” inspired by the hymn “Onward, Christian Solders.”

The Rev. Pattie Gordon, pastor of Wesley-Open Hearts UMC Charge in Aiken, will be the keynote speaker. The Rev. Rhonda Smith, music minister at First UMC in Hickory, N.C.; will serve as song leader, with help from the Rev. Ann Hoyt from Burnsville, N.C.; and the S.C. UMW’s own Limitless Team, which will entertain with liturgical dance and speech.

The goal is to combine all the talents of spiritual leaders and allow God’s divine presence to reign throughout the Stuart Auditorium at Lake Junaluska.
