The First United Methodist Church of Ogallala is hosting a Prayer Retreat from May 17th through the 19th, 2024, at Camp Norwesca. The retreat is open to ages twelve and up, and anyone wishing to grow in their prayer life. Rev. Curt Magelky will be leading participants through various personal and corporate prayer practices, including Lectio Divina, the Daily Examine, prayer walks, journaling, and praying with beads among others. During the retreat, there will be opportunities for group learning, prayer, and worship, along with free time to grow in your relationship with God in the beautiful Pine Ridge Forest of Northwest Nebraska.

Saturday, May 18th will be a long day filled with prayer and learning. Three square meals will be provided, and weather permitting, there will be opportunities to enjoy some time with God in nature. Sunday, May 19th, after breakfast, we will join together in the chapel for Sunday morning worship, followed by a recap of the weekend and our journey home.
