    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    ministries / Vital Congregations

    Growing with God

    Offering tools and a setting in which to discern gifts from God and unique callings to be in ministry.

    This program is designed to offer participants a deeper relationship with God; a relationship that will offer them a sacred space to become more Christ-like disciples, a path to invite others into that same relationship with God, a more disciplined and focused prayer life, and the willingness to trust God’s guidance and direction for their lives and the willingness to seek and respond to the movement of the Spirit in their lives.

    Topics will include a number of contemplative prayer practices, traditional spiritual disciplines, and discernment.
