Fall 2018


How deep are the roots of our faith? How do those roots grow and bear fruit?
Listen as our guest speakers Fr. Thomas and Shelly Buchan
help us recall and retell our Christian story.

Our Fall Retreat is one of our favorite weekends of the year! This is a time for our church family to grow closer together as we nestle under the redwoods, pray together, and are refreshed. Get ready for bonfires, music, and lots of time to play—don’t miss out!
