What we're doing
Registration is now open for the 2017 Salmon Creek United Methodist Leadership Retreat. If you are in leadership at Salmon Creek in any way, shape, or form, you are invited to attend. (If you have had to step out of leadership, you are welcome as well because of your past service. We want you to be in the know about how we see God guiding and leading our congregation at this time.) Register early to make sure you secure one of the 50 seats for this wonderful retreat.
we are richly blessed by the two retreat settings that have been provided to us by the generosity of Pacific Continental Bank and the Ed and Dollie Lynch Estate. These locations will get us out of our campus and into other contexts of our regional ministry. The Lynch home is something to behold. The entire estate will be open to us (patios, Ed’s office, dining room, Dollie’s craft room, the sun room, the mud room, and of course the bathrooms). The gardens are glorious! The downstairs library (20,000 volumes) speaks to Ed’s passion for learning. Jim Mains, caretaker and neighbor, will be available to answer questions about the estate at the end of our time together.
Guest Speaker – The Rev. Josh Rowley
serves as the Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Vancouver, Washington. He has been there for four years. He completed his Doctor of Ministry (Fuller Theological Seminary) degree on the topic of context for ministry and shared language of leadership. He is a fascinating person, a profound thinker, and an all-around, passionate servant of Christ.
Enjoy the fellowship of table around good food and delightful people who share the same passions for Christ and our community that you do!
