All Church Family Retreat at Redwood Glen

August 2-4


The dates for the all church family retreat are August 2-4, at Redwood Glen. The leader for adults will be Rev. Paul Schneider, Executive Associate Minister of Operations and Administration. Some of us had an opportunity to meet Rev. Paul last year and recently, as he continued our training in consensus decision making.  Consider joining with our church family and friends for a time of renewal in the beautiful surroundings of Redwood Glen. The theme for the retreat is: “Love Your Neighbor as Yourself.”

Redwood Glen needs lifeguards. We received notice that at this time the camp cannot guarantee a lifeguard will be in place for our event. Click here to view the announcement and pass it on to anyone who is qualified and may be interested in the position. Or if you know someone qualified who might commit to the weekend of August 2-4 if needed.
