Jane Rubietta, nationaly acclaimed author and speaker, will lead a women's retreat from 9-3:00 on November 16th at Bethel Wesley United Methodist Church. The theme for the retreat is: Transitions

Audiences describe her speaking as "mesmerizing, deeply spiritual, funny, vulnerable, dramatic, and personal."  Jane's passion is to see people's hearts restored by the knowledge of the truth: that God absolutely delights in them, that God is crazy about them, that God would give everything on Earth to make sure they know they are loved.

A continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided at the retreat.  The cost is $25 per person; registration is due by Nov. 7.  A few scholarships are available.  Childcare will be available, but must be requested at registration.

On the same day, Jane's husband, Rev. Rich Rubietta will lead a music camp for children grades 2-6 from 9-Noon. Rich has been described as a "musician-ary."  He has led children's music workshops for churches as well as public and parochial skills.  Children attending the camp will be treated to a wide variety of fun musical experiences.

The cost of the music camp is $5 per child; a few scholarships are available.  Registration is limited to 50 children so register early!

To registration information for either event, call Karen at 762-0619.
