Children & Youth Workers
WHO: Full-time & part-time youth workers at South Georgia Conference UMC churches
WHAT: A one-night getaway in a beautiful location with like-minded counterparts from across our conference
WHERE: Little Ocmulgee State Park, Helena, GA: a central location to minimize driving and maximize community
WHEN: Thursday, January 21st at 2:00pm through Friday, January 22, 2021 at noon.
WHY: It has been a year unlike any we've ever had. Your job has changed drastically. Your students got used to being away from church. You're trying to walk your kids through a crisis that you've never had to navigate. And it's been hard. For all of us.
We need each other - people who are walking in our exact shoes.
We need truth - people to speak into us what God is AND CAN DO in the middle of all of this.
We need hope - people coming together to worship; to reset; to learn; to encourage; to dream...again.
Housing for the 1-night event will be in the Lodge Rooms at Little Ocmulgee State Park. They are spacious, clean, and will have 2 double beds in each. We will only place 2 people per room (temps recorded & COVID question procedures will come 2 days prior to the event and day-of). Roommate requests will be accepted.
**OPENS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020**. Only 30 spots are available to maintain safe social distancing for this retreat. The fee for the event is $90 and will cover the cost of a 1-night stay in a Lodge Room at Little Ocmulgee State Park as well as dinner on the 21st and breakfast on the 22nd. Programming costs will be handled by the Conference.
