Announcing the 4th annual Fall Family Weekend at Sumatanga, October 13-15, 2017. Mark your calendar now!
ROMANS 12:2 tells us "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind..."
Strengthen your family by playing together, relaxing together, and worshipping together in a very special weekend designed to include every age group and stage of life! An affordable fall weekend where your family can experience some of the many activities Sumatanga has to offer, as well as discover time to disconnect from the world around you, and Re/Connect with God and those you hold dearest! This years’ event will be led by Clearbranch UMC’s associate pastor, Jeremy Auvil. Jeremy is actively planning opportunities for you to Unplug, Re/Connect, Listen, and Respond.
Friday Night Topic: Unplug and reConnect (focus on making time in the presence of God a priority). Saturday (Day) Topic: Listen (seeking to hear the “still small voice of God”) Saturday Evening Topic: Respond (recognizing that when we reConnect to God, and Listen for his call in our life, that we are often called to action and challenged to respond).
Friday night: Join in on an exciting time of fellowship as we unplug from the world around us and get to know each other through a variety of fun activities. Cap this evening off with time around a bonfire and some ooey-gooey S'mores!!
Saturday: Let's find a way to put our hands to work for God and dig into a service project at Sumatanga. Later in the day, there will be plenty of time for family fun, and fun with new friends, as we enjoy the variety of activities that Sumatanga has to offer. We will cap off the evening with dinner and evening worship sessions.
Sunday : A time to reflect on the weekend, we will close with worship Sunday morning before packing up and heading home.
