2019 Join the Journey Confirmation Retreat set for March 1-3

December 03, 2018
During the weekend of March 1-3, 2019, more than 500 confirmands will gather at Epworth By The Sea on St. Simons Island for the annual “Join the Journey” Confirmation Retreat of the South Georgia Conference.

Tailored to fifth-grade students and above, confirmands will enjoy learning about their United Methodist heritage in a high-energy, exciting atmosphere. Participants will also be exposed to the diverse leadership that makes up the South Georgia Conference as Bishop Lawson Bryan, pastors, youth directors, children’s directors, and lay members share and teach during the general sessions and workshops. Throughout the weekend, confirmands will journey through the church seasons, gaining a better understanding of their role as United Methodists and members of the body of Christ.

Registration is OPEN. The deadline to register is Feb. 11 or until the event reaches maximum capacity. Click here for more information about registration.

For more information, contact Event Coordinator Suzanne Akins at the Office of Connectional Ministries at (888) 266-7642 or by email at suzanne@sgaumc.com.
