Ignite Your Fire … Feed Your Soul … Build Your Faith … In Nature’s Sanctuary


Our four year marketing theme “Mark This Place” is adapted from the Bryan Sirchio song.  “Find a stone like Jacob and mark this place … surely God’s been with us here … and some day when we return, we’ll remember things we’ve learned … by God’s grace, mark this place.”  Each year we are using a foundational element of the earth to enhance the theme.  Two years ago our rock Cairns laid the foundation and set our path.  Last year we refreshed, renewed, and cleansed ourselves with water.  This year we are turning up the heat with FIRE!


Our activities, curriculum, and mission offering will all be geared around God’s gift of fire.  We will kindle ourselves in community, light our souls around the campfires, and fan the flames of Christian peace, hope, and love!  We look forward to the creative and exciting ways the element of fire will come alive at Pilgrim Center and Moon Beach and we look forward to igniting you.
