Retreat Information

The Confirmation Retreat will begin at 7p on April 28 and conclude at 4p on April 29. Students participating in confirmation should be dropped off and picked up on time at Johnston Woods. This Confirmation Retreat is designed for 6th through 12th grade students and will allow students to confirm their salvation in Jesus Christ as they move forward in their journey toward membership Ringgold United Methodist Church. We will worship together and look at what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We will also be discussing the mission of Ringgold United Methodist Church, group life, using our gifts in service, tithing, evangelism, and the member covenant in ways that are applicable to the lives of young people.

This retreat will be lead by Pastor Bobby Fleck and Pastor Ben Cathey. Full attendance for the whole retreat is required. Cost will be $40 per person to help cover the costs of food, supplies, and lodging. Contact Bobby Fleck for more information (
