Event plans to recharge the bodies and souls of students.

This college’s United Methodist Student Ministry is having its first fall retreat at Williamson Ranch Nov 7-8 in Harper.
The retreat, which takes place 23 miles from Fredericksburg, offers students a chance to recharge the spirit through Bible study, worship and community.
“The purpose of the retreat is to connect to other people and form an intentional community,” said the Rev. Danny Silva, campus ministry director. “And while doing that, focus on God and his purpose in your life.”
The United Methodist Campus Ministry is an outreach of the Southwest Texas and Rio Grande Conferences of the United Methodist Church and offers services to faculty and students of this campus, Trinity and UTSA.
The retreat will feature food, entertainment and group-building exercises.
The ranch offers 19 spots with beds, but there are additional sleeping areas available and students should bring a sleeping bag or inflatable mattress.
Students will carpool from this campus at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 7 and return at 6 P.M. Nov 8.
Registration ends Oct. 30, and the cost is $15 for students 18-21 years old. To register, submit cash or check the student ministry building on the corner of Dewey and Belknap from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
