Get Out of the Boat: Annual men’s spiritual retreat is Feb. 16 at Mount Horeb

LEXINGTON—With the arrival of 2019 come new and fresh opportunities. For the United Methodist Men of South Carolina, the annual men’s spiritual retreat has a new look, as well.

This year’s event will take place at Mount Horeb United Methodist Church, Lexington, Feb. 16.

The daylong event will be jam-packed with preaching, testimonies, a comedian, workshops, fellowship opportunities and music.

“Our prayer is that every church across South Carolina would gather a group of men who want to see renewal and a fresh move of God’s spirit in their communities and join us for this annual event,” event leaders said.

The theme this year is Get Out of the Boat: Faith Over Fear. They pose questions such as how would your family, community, work place and church be different if you no longer lived out of fear, but instead out of faith?

This event is for men and boys of all ages.

The lead speaker is Stuart Hall, director of Leadership and Leadership Networking for Orange (ReThink Group) and also leads INFLUNSR, an organization whose mission is to fuel the next generation of leaders worth following. Hall will help men learn how to lead with faith rather than fear.

Workshops are led by other men who are on the front lines of developing men ready to lead. Comedian Akintunde will challenge and encourage with his humor. The Mount Horeb Worship Team will lead worship.

The cost is $70 (lunch included). Registration is from 8-9:15 a.m. and the event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

It will be held in the Mount Horeb UMC Auditorium, 1205 Old Cherokee Rd., Lexington, SC 29072.
