Gather for Community and Worship
Retreats and Pilgrimages
A Journey to the Holy Land
May 26 – June 6, 2023
You are invited to join the Rev. Mark Stanger and other travelers as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus and generations of pilgrims. We will experience together the places of Jesus’ birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection. Our veteran personal local guide, Canon Iyad Qumri, will lead us in encountering several faith traditions, ancient sites, vibrant markets, modern museums, and local communities in a land suspended between East and West, past and present.
Racial Justice Youth Pilgrimage
Our youth group pilgrims will deepen their understanding of the fight for justice in the U.S. and experience how the fight continues. They will meet community groups and leaders, see civil rights memorials and museums, reflect upon the challenges of social justice work… and learn the skills and mindset needed to be tomorrow’s changemakers.
