Bethesda Prayer Retreat One of the joys of life is good conversation with a friend. Jesus loved conversations with God, and he taught us to do the same when he taught us the Lord’s Prayer. You are invited to spend a day in conversation with God. Come away to a prayer retreat at the church Saturday, March 2, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pastor Jim will guide participants through this day of input, personal prayer and reflections together. The morning session begins at 8:30 a.m. with a midmorning break and lunch at noon. The afternoon session begins at 1:00 p.m. with a midafternoon break. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Bring a Bible, notebook and a writing tool. Please sign up in the church office by February 26. Come for the whole day or the morning or afternoon sessions as your time allows. Sessions will begin at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Jim.
