Deadline approaches to sign up for Discover God’s Call weekend


“If you have not attended a DGC weekend please consider attending our retreat in November. You definitely will not be disappointed,” says Jennie Heberg, a United Methodist pastor’s wife.

Heberg attended her first retreat at Arlean Hall on the grounds of Seashore Assembly in Biloxi at few years ago. Recently her family visited there and they saw the continuing effects of the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. 

In looking at that deteriorating building, she was reminded of what happens to many people spiritually when they do not continue the upkeep on their spiritual house. Discover God’s Call is a form of maintenance that is like “spring cleaning.” All the cobwebs are swept away; fresh paint is applied following restoration and refurbishing. 

For those who haven’t heard God’s call on their lives in a while, this is the time and place to hear it. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life always provides renewal. In addition to the spiritual refreshment, Heberg said she has met many new friends.

Those who have been looking for what God would have them and the cobwebs are too thick to hear and see or need a fresh touch form the Lord or companionship of like-minded believers should consider going Camp Wesley Pines in November to Discover God’s Call weekend. 

The retreat is Nov. 7-9 at Camp Wesley Pines in Gallman and the cost is $145 (scholarships are available) The Rev. Dale Hathorn, a United Methodist evangelist, will be the inspirational speaker. Registration will continue until Oct. 3.

Registration has to be completed early because of a pre-retreat study that each participant will need to complete before coming to the retreat. Those who attend a retreat are assisted in finding out what their spiritual gifts are and how God might be calling them to use them in their local church.
