Registration has opened for the Men’s Retreat, November 15–17, which will be led this year by Pastor Ron Dunn from the Newcastle (CA) United Methodist Church. Pastor Ron was raised in Cupertino (pre-Silicon Valley). Ron has served five United Methodist Churches in the California-Nevada Conference over the past 43 years. He is an avid fly fisherman. Men of all ages are invited to participate in the retreat. The theme will be “Reflections on Fly Fishing and Faith.” Most people fish all their lives when they realize fish is not what they are looking for. The weekend will include presentations, discussion, music, time for reflection, a hike through the forest (optional), a Saturday evening movie and discussion, and Sunday worship with Holy Communion. There will also be time for play, singing, walking, napping, and eating. You are encouraged to invite a friend!
The retreat will be held at Mount Hermon Christian Retreat Center near Felton, about 45 minutes from LAUMC, amidst a beautiful redwood forest. The registration fee of $320 includes all retreat materials, two nights’ lodging in either a cabin or a deluxe room with a roommate and bathroom (no dorm rooms), and six buffet-style meals from Friday dinner through lunch Sunday. Please register online, or drop off a print registration form and a check at the church office. Scholarships are available. If you have any questions, contact Retreat Coordinator Ernie Sapigao (650-714-1817).
