Holden Evening Prayer


Monday July 6th – Friday July 10th at 7:00pm

Pastor Gretchen and Karen Lee will lead us each evening in the cleansing solace that is Holden Evening Prayer.  Grab a cup of tea and settle down for a soothing 25 minutes of song, prayer, and scripture.  The music will be “shared” online, so you can participate.

Listen here to the story of Holden Evening Prayer, as told by the composer, Marty Haugen: https://youtu.be/q8wJsVDmXYM

Podcasts with Pastor Alan Storey from the Holden Archives

Every day, at your leisure!

Pastor Alan Storey of Capetown, South Africa has been a regular presenter at Holden Village over the years, and his classes from 2017 seem to be on point for the days we’ve been seeing the past months.  We have invited Pastor Storey to join us in the fall for a forum, and this series will be a great introduction to his teaching.  For those of you who have participated in the “Manna and Mercy” bible classes, Pastor Storey is also the writer of that curriculum.  Enjoy!

Nature Hike

2pm  Saturday July 11

Join us for a socially distanced nature hike in our own Carkeek Park! We will hike in down to the beach, and then hike back out again.  Weller (age 6) can do this hike – so it’s not super-difficult, but there is a bit of elevation gain on the way in and out.
