I believe in God, only I spell it N-A-T-U-R-E –-Frank Lloyd Wright
At Forest Church we build community through sacred places and practices that connect us to creation through nature. We learn while playing. We grow while praying. We meditate with the trees and practice with the grass to become more connected, more nourished and in return more nourishing to others in our lives.
Forest Church will bring you into relationship with the Seasons. It will ask you to listen to nature. It will ask you to experience, share your knowledge and wisdom with others to build community.
All you need in order to attend Forest Church is the openness to experience, the willingness to play and the readiness to connect. And not to be forgotten…proper outdoor clothing! Forest Church happens regardless of the weather. Better said…”Forest Church happens in relationship to the weather.” And in the end as Bruce Stanley says; ” The worship will happen when your heart is caught up in the beauty of the moment.” Please feel welcome to join us on one of our Sacred Sunday’s.
