Let's Create Something New
Come away for a weekend of rest and training for all Pastors in the Bluewater Presbytery. There will be opportunities on Thursday and Friday to get to know one another better and work together to build strong churches and a strong presbytery built on strong relationships and a missional vision. Be restored among the Santa Cruz redwoods and return refreshed to nurture your communities and make Christ known.
