DSC Camp & Retreat Ministries is pleased to offer Silver Sessions, twice-monthly online zoom sessions designed for seniors who are hoping to gather, connect, and learn something new. Each month will bring something new with variety including Cooking with a Chef, Paint Parties, Historical Lectures, Astronomy Lessons, Virtual Games, and more!
For the upcoming session, Tuesday, March 2nd from 2:00 – 3:00 pm MST, we are joining Jennifer Barber, DSCUMC Conference Archivist, for a presentation on, “Trials, Temptations, and Sweet Communications with God: Tales from 150 years of Methodism in Arizona and Southern Nevada”. In the fall of 1870, Methodist missionaries arrived in Arizona. This time they stayed – establishing a Methodist foothold that would endure and grow over the next 150 years. Join us to hear tales from 1,100-mile circuits, of how the laity kept the work of God alive, the early and continuous support of social justice issues, of the strong women who accomplished more than ever given credit for, and many more stories – all accomplished with an unwavering belief in the grace of God.
Click here to register for the presentation. You will also receive updates on all upcoming Silver Sessions!
