Aldersgate UMC to host Great Northern District men's retreat August 19-22


Aldersgate UMC in Chico, CA will host the 2022 Great Northern District men's retreat from August 19-22, which will take place at the United Methodist Shasta Camp.

This year's theme is B.L.E.S.S.: Love your neighbor as yourself.  B.L.E.S.S. stands for 5 everyday ways to love your neighbor and change the world. The event promotional brochurch (attached) states, "No matter who your neighbors are, the Bible’s advice on how I am to treat them is clear. It says, “Love your neighbor as yourself” eight times. Not once, Not twice Eight times! Loving your neighbor is so important to God that He repeats Himself , but also makes it a command. Jesus coupled loving your neighbor with the command to love God. This year’s retreat will focus on practicing five everyday ways to love your neighbor and change the world: Begin with prayer Listen Eat Serve Story Join us as we learn these five simple practices that God has provided to accomplish God’s mission in the world!"

Lee Neish will be the featured speaker.  Lee has been a pastor in the California/Nevada Conference for 43 years serving Cupertino Good Sam, Gilroy, Los Gatos, Napa and now Sparks UMC next to Reno. He is currently working in collaboration with Conference to plant a satellite of Sparks UMC in the rapidly growing Spanish Springs area north east of Sparks. He has a heart for evangelism and grown a great affinity to the Great Northern District annual Shasta Men’s Retreat since first attending in 2013. Lee stated “I look forward to our time together as the close of summer.
