When is the last time you listened to God?

Silent Retreat 2024

Download the information packet with the itinerary, cost and more.

Remove yourself from your daily routine to spend time in silence with God at the Sacred Heart Monastery in Cullman, Sept. 13-15. Walk around the lake, stroll through the gardens, experience the prayer labyrinth, attend a prayer service with the Benedictine Sisters, or even take a nap and rest in the presence of God. The weekend is yours to spend as you like in communion with our Creator.

Retreat is limited to 12 individuals. Registration deadline: August 1 or until full.

Or take this class in person Sundays this July at 9:45 a.m.

When we talk about apprenticeship, we are talking about becoming students of the rabbi, Jesus of Nazareth. In regards to the class, we will spend four weeks exploring what that looks like. The weeks will be split up to talk about Jesus’ invitation to “follow me,” what it means to be with Jesus, what it looks like to become like Jesus, and finally, doing what Jesus did. I’m excited to focus our attention on Jesus, his life, and his teachings on how to live in and from the kingdom of God, right now.

I took my first step into a lesson series at Asbury last year with Pastor Robert's "The Walk," and I have looked forward to every one since. I love the different perspectives and styles each pastor brings to the table, and Pastor Michael's class, Apprenticeship, is no exception. Do yourself a favor and take the class!

Read the sermons of John Wesley, Founder of the UMC Movement

John Wesley (1703-1791) founded Methodism. A prolific writer, he printed several volumes of his sermons during his lifetime. The published sermons either were rewritten from ones that he had preached or were written specifically for print.

Interested in reading what Wesley wrote? His sermons are available online through ResourceUMC and you can sort by number, title, or scripture reference.
