Join the MZ Youth in trip to Holden Village, WA

Holden Village

“Rediscovering Sabbath” August 3-10, 2019

The Mt Zion youth are opening up this summer’s youth trip to the entire Mt Zion congregation! The theme of this cross-generational activity will be Rediscovering Sabbath. There’s no better place to go for a topic like this than Holden Village, in the mountains of Washington State. Remembering how to slow down, unplug and rediscover God in nature, music, art, play and relationships will be on the agenda.

Nestled in the mountains of the beautiful Glacier Peak Wilderness, Holden Village provides space for visitors to get back to basics. The Village welcomes all who seek rest and renewal to take part in daily rhythms of work, recreation, worship, and shared meals with good company.

The isolation of the Village (no roads lead to Holden Village) creates room for a unique way of life at Holden. As a “place apart,” Holden inspires rhythms of living that vary with the seasons. Summer offers a diverse program menu from learning sessions by visiting faculty to art courses and family programs. Other seasons offer their own rhythms, providing time for personal reflection, outdoor recreation, exploration of our art and craft studios, and good conversation.
