Meet us:

I’m thrilled to have AMELIA DERNIER as our music guest. Her powerful, Spirit-filled voice will usher you right into the presence of your King in soulful worship.

“I have been involved in worship through music in many capacities since I joined youth band in high school. I work in special education and love to be outside enjoying creation, reading or creating.”

AIMEE LEPARI will lead our activities and games.

Hi ladies, I am a church admin and event coordinator. I’m praying that our time away helps us see how we are called to be in Him! As in heaven, also upon earth. We are called to live out His words, not just know them. Let’s take our rightful place as daughters of the most high!

I love to landscape and enjoy my farm. I’m a wife and mum of 3 boys and a girl.

JENNIFER COLLARD will lead stretching sessions and our hike on Saturday afternoon.

Hello there 🙂 I am a follower of Jesus Christ. My profession is a licensed massage therapist. The Lord called me to this work to help people and show the love of God through human touch. Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit and I feel very strongly about keeping it healthy. I love backpacking with my sweet husband, paddle-boarding, cycling, and spending time with my dog Ziggy. I’m happiest in the great outdoors, where I feel closest to the Lord. I also enjoy capturing his creation in photography.
