Located a short distance north of Boca Raton, Delray Beach offers a two mile stretch of sand along the Atlantic coast that is famous for a family-friendly atmosphere where kids can spend hours building sand castles and playing in the surf. In addition to enjoying the sweeping vistas of waves washing up on the sand, visitors can also spend time wandering Atlantic Avenue, which borders the ocean and offers an extensive array of seafood restaurants and boutique shops.

Recently honored by Rand McNally and USA Today as the “Most Fun Small Town in America,” Delray Beach provides opportunities for many other activities, from shopping to night entertainment to festivals. Each March, the Savor the Avenue event bringst together over 1,000 guests to dine on a five-block stretch of Atlantic Avenue, creating the longest dining table in the state.

United Methodist Church Offers Women’s Retreat in Florida

As vice president of technology automation control systems for Minnesota-based Honeywell, Daniel Sheflin is responsible for the research and development aspects of the technology company. Outside of the office, Daniel Sheflin is active with several organizations and regular contributes to the United Methodist Church, especially to the one located in Port Orange, Florida.

Created in 1968 when the Evangelical United Brethren Church and Methodist Church combined, the United Methodist Church prides itself on having an open mind and open heart. There are several conferences, or regions, scattered across the country, and the Port Orange church is part of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church.

A woman’s retreat is scheduled on three weekends during the first several months of 2014. These three-day events allow women an opportunity to step away from household responsibilities and job stresses to reconnect with other women and God. The first event, scheduled for the beginning of February, offers women a chance to study the Bible, create crafts, partake in fellowship, and enjoy food. Held annually, all these retreats occur at Lake Griffin in Fruitland Park at the Life Enrichment Center.
