Confirmation Retreat
at Camp Widewater 

The Confirmation Retreat is an enhancement to your church's current confirmation program. Students already involved in the confirmation process at their church may attend a great winter/spring retreat designed to supplement the confirmation experience. This weekend retreat will provide students an opportunity to explore their own faith journey through 4 selected topics.

   Covenant - Spiritual Gifts - Wesleyan Tradition - "I" Believe 


This is a fun opportunity for youth to connect with other young believers in a camp and retreat setting. Youth will be able to meet other confirmands, attend powerful worship, outdoor activity, debrief within small groups, and enjoy great meals.

 In honor of World Interfaith Harmony Week, we are again inviting Greater Toledo & NW Ohio clergy & faith leaders to a free breakfast.  This is an opportunity to meet with other clergy/faith leaders, especially some new ones, and to engage in a Scriptural Reasoning dialog. This form of dialog examines a set of MultiFaith Scriptural resources on a common theme in an interfaith setting.

There is no free lunch, but there is a free breakfast!  Please join in this local expression  of World Interfaith Harmony.

Free Lenten Devotions
Ash Wednesday is February 18 -
very early this year - so the SoSA urges you to take a few moments now to order Lenten resources for your congregation.



      Again for 2015, SoSA offers two spiritual life resources for the season, which can be used separately or in combination. For congregational use, you'll want to order one copy per participating household of the resource(s) you select. Regardless of quantity, all materials are provided to you without charge.
