October 27 - October 30
Have you considered attending a Cursillo weekend?
Cursillo is a Christian Spiritual Renewal Program that began in Spain in 1949. Cursillo means “short course” and Cursillo is a short course in Christianity. Cursillo focuses on helping lay people become better followers of Jesus by giving us tools to live out our life for Christ in the everyday world.
On the weekend you will learn about the three basic methods of Cursillo: Piety (worship and prayer), Study (Bible and spiritual books), and Action (how to do ministry). All three of these methods work together to help a person live out a real life of following Jesus, both in the church and in the world.
On the Cursillo weekend there are talks, small group discussions and singing. Most of the talks are given by lay people while the clergy lead meditations and celebrate the Eucharist. The weekends are full of both learning new things and most importantly, spiritual discovery and growth. Each person is allowed freedom to discover and develop in their own way.
The next Cursillo weekend will be October 27th through the 30th at the Pine Valley Bible Conference Center. Yes, it really does begin on Thursday evening, the 27th. Are you ready to move forward on your walk with Jesus in faith and love? If your answer is yes, you’ll be in good company.
