Educational Opportunities During the Year:
Via de Cristo | Bethelwoods Camp, SC
Via de Cristo means “the Way of Christ”. It is a name used by Lutherans for a movement of personal Christian renewal within the Church. This instrument of renewal originated in Spain under the name of “Cursillo”. It has been in North Carolina since September, 1976. It is a highly structured, well-thought-out method for renewing the faith of individuals, the congregations from which they come and the environments in which they live and work. This renewal movement is presented as a united effort of laypersons and clergy to aid congregations in the development of Christian leaders.
A Via de Cristo Retreat is an encounter with Christ in which the participant becomes a part of a community abounding in God’s grace . It enhances and strengthens our personal relationship with Christ, with our Christian brothers and sisters and with the Christian community. The Via de Cristo Retreat is coming face to face with Christ.
