BWOCThe Way of Christ: 
For Spiritual Renewal and Developing Christian Leaders


The Way of Christ is a three day retreat that takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle.  The highly structured weekend is designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them, their families, churches, and the environment in which they live and work.  The retreat is a united effort of laity and clergy to aid congregations in developing Christian leaders who will feel so renewed and empowered that the church will likewise be renewed.   A retreat is held every spring and fall usually in March and October.  The weekend begins on a Thursday evening and ends on a Sunday night.  There are separate weekends for men and women.  During the weekend you will attend morning chapel services and celebrate communion, pray, sing, enjoy fellowship, eat delicious food, make new friends and discuss talks given by laity and clergy.  The talks center on the grace of God, the reality of grace in your life, how to live the life of grace and how to impart grace to others. 

Springweekends in 2018 are March 1- 4th for men and March 8th - 11th for women.  For more information contact Pastor Eric Alwine.
