Rest, Reflect, Recharge.
Saturday, April 06, 2019, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Between the demands of work, friends and family, setting aside time for rest seems like a luxury instead of necessity. Jesus spoke to his disciples about the importance of the Sabbath, but in our 21st century life, how do we find space for connection to God, self and each other? Come learn some practical ideas to create and enjoy sacred time that nourishes your soul.
Our day will include inspiring guest speakers, interactive activity stations and a time of worship. We hope you'll join us and bring your friends!
Event is $20 per person and free childcare is available. Childcare reservation deadline is Sunday, March 31.
Participants are encouraged to bring feminine hygiene products to support homeless women through the Support the Girls organization.
We welcome Rev. Rachel Baughman back to King of Glory as our keynote speaker for 2019. She is passionate about discipleship, social justice, and hospitality for those on the margins. Her activism ranges from local community advocacy in the city of Dallas, to international partnerships that engage and empower Syrian refugees in Lebanon. To find rest in her busy schedule, Rachel takes time to read and center herself every Friday. She also spends time finding fun things to do with her kids and enjoys watching The Good Place with her husband. Rachel is the Senior Pastor of Oak Lawn UMC, in Dallas and is a graduate of Texas Wesleyan University and Drew Theological Seminary. Her husband, Rev. Mike Baughman, is also a United Methodist minister and they live in the Dallas area with their four children.
