Fact Sheets to Tell the Stories of Major Initiatives

Click Here to View Fact Sheet FRESH EXPRESSIONS

Fresh Expressions is the first in a series of brief fact sheets about our developing major conference initiatives. The fact sheets, a communication effort designed by Bishop Carter, will provide a quick overview describing:

What is the initiative?

Where are we now in its development?

Where are we going with it?

The purpose is to inform our key leaders and others about these initiatives not only for their own information, but also to provide leaders with answers to "What’s going on?" questions asked by their constituents.

The fact sheets are being produced by the Strategic Leadership Team and our Communications Department. They will be published on a regular basis, and future topics include:

Extension Ministers Retreat, February 27, 2016.

Greetings once again in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I hope by now that all of you have received the "Save the Date" letter about our next Extension Ministers day retreat on February 27, 2016.  I promised you more information in my last letter, so here it is.

When discussing our upcoming retreat, we decided on a quality facility located right on Daytona Beach so that all attendees can take full advantage of a beautiful beach location and community. Please use this opportunity to get away and recharge your batteries. If you’re like me there’s always something to keep me busy, but if it gets on my calendar, then I will most likely do it. So let me encourage you to block off that weekend on your calendar and plan to join us.

The hotel facility is the Shores Resort. Please visit their website at www.shoresresort.com. We have been offered a special room rate, at the only four diamond luxury beachfront resort hotel in Daytona Beach, at $149 per night plus tax. Perhaps you might want to make it a family weekend get-away. A block of rooms has been reserved for both Friday and Saturday night at the hotel. Please contact the hotel directly to make your reservations. Our retreat will be held at the hotel, but you are certainly not obligated to stay the night at the hotel. If you want to stay the weekend at a nearby hotel that puts less stress on your budget, then please feel free to do so. Or you can simply join us the day of the retreat.

Just like last year, you will be responsible for all your expenses to and from the retreat site and any overnight accommodations. The Annual Conference will provide the conference room, arrival snacks and lunch for retreat attendees.

This facility will provide an excellent venue for us to get away, relax, fellowship and spiritually focus. As I mentioned in my last letter, I am very pleased that Bishop Charlene Kammerer has agreed to be our retreat leader for the day. We will begin at 10 a.m. on February 27 and conclude no later than 4 p.m. You can register for the retreat by following the link provided by clicking here. If you have retreat questions or difficulty with registration please contact Holly Finley in Rev. Dr. Wayne Wiatt’s office at 1-863-688-5563, ext. 134 or email: hfinley@flumc.org
