Worship Saturday and Sunday mornings was in a tent in the ballfield. Worshipers could enter the tent with bare feet and walk to symbolize the theme of “Listening on Holy Ground.”

Delegates gathered in the Lodge on Saturday afternoon to hear updates from around the confere2016-annual-assembly-delegate-sessionnce and to consider the 2017 budget.

Recreational activities included hikes, walks, yoga, tie dying, watercolor painting, rock climbing, rappelling and outdoor games.
