Jane Scanlon, a Certified Forest Therapy Guide, will be leading us on this gentle sunset walk amongst the ancient rock structures and forest life of this beautiful and diverse park.

Mountain Sabbath at John Wesley Ranch

Sunday, 7/24 | 9:00am-4:30pm | 21285 State Highway 67 | todds@fumc-cs.org

“Sabbath” means “to rest from labor” or "stopping with God." Mountain Sabbath is an opportunity to set aside your normal schedule for a quiet day with others in the mountains at our beautiful John Wesley Ranch in Divide, Colorado. We will gather in the Lodge at 9:00am for coffee and tea. The day will include contemplative worship, a spiritual teaching, and time for lunch and activities that encourage slowing down and soaking in the present moment, such as reading, hiking, art, napping, meeting with a spiritual director, and other soul-refreshing activities. We will close the day by gathering for Holy Communion and a blessing.

While not required, we suggest a donation of $20 per person, which will support this and other contemplative offerings of FUMC.

Please register by Wednesday, July 20 with Todd Spencer via email or by calling (719)471-8522 x131.

ManUp Men's Ministry Update (2.10.22) 

Summer Service Projects
NEW DATE! Service Project #1: On Saturday, August 6, 9am-4pm, our Ranch Caretaker, Zach Walker, has invited us to form a team of men to complete needed projects at John Wesley Ranch. There are lots of needs to assist with, like splitting wood, gleaning the forest of dead trees and more. Will you let me know if you are interested in serving on the team that day, please? 
 
Service Project #2: Also this summer, date TBA, I would like to form a team for another day-long service project on behalf of a church-member in need. This particular project will be mostly debris and trash removal. I'll rent a roll-off dumpster or two for us to fill up. This will make their home so much safer. I'll reach back out about this project with more details this spring.
