Grow Spiritually

We provide opportunities and resources to grow spiritually, become more deeply rooted in Christ, and put faith into action.

Spiritual Retreat at Mission Springs. This annual event brings together women from our District and beyond, to experience renewal in a peaceful mountain setting. A  seminar leader offers thoughtful talks and workshops – something different every year!

Healing and Joy: On Our Journey to God.  The United Methodist Women Program Book for 2021-2022 focuses on finding healing and joy in many areas of our lives, guided by those in the scriptures who felt a similar need to find healing and joy in the midst of transition and hardship.

New This Year:  Each session (now helpfully organized into four quarters by season) will has options for in- person or online gathering, and devotions and questions that are appropriate for personal study, sharing with one neighbor or friend, or for discussion in large groups. Ideas on how to “Take the Next Most Faithful Step” close each program, suggesting ways you can put the ideas discussed here into action right now. 

Finding Peace in an Anxious World. This 2020 Spiritual Growth Study by staff of the Urban Village Church, uses the book of Proverbs and “The Serenity Prayer” as a guide to help Christians find their way through anxiety, worry, and fear and move towards God’s peace that surpasses all understanding.
