Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

New retreat especially for high school grads


What’s next for the Class of 2012? A brand-new overnight retreat will offer answers, on Aug. 3-4 at Camp Egan, for "Life After High School."

Four workshops and two worship services fill the schedule.

  • Try Everything, Don’t Lose Yourself—Camp director Josh Pulver will focus on the social scene and how it can impact a student.
  • Owning Your Faith—New experiences bombard college students. How do you know what to believe? How do you make faith a part of the journey? James Hunt, associate pastor at Broken Arrow-First, will lead this class.
  • Basic Finance/Stay Out of Debt—Campus ministry director Elizabeth Horton-Ware will lead this session on common financial mistakes that college students make.
  • What Is Greek Life?/The MRS Degree—Leader Darren Johnson will discuss fraternities and sororities, as well as the "MRS" label (as in marriage).
  • Worship leaders will be Bishop Robert E. Hayes Jr. and Nathan Mattox, senior pastor at Tulsa’s University UMC. Led by Jonathon Garrett, the Wesley@OU praise band will provide music.

Registration deadline is July 23. Camp dean is Janey Wilson, janey@okwesley.org,  405-321-6266.
