Stewardship of the Land: a Christian Community Gathering will take place on May 21-23 at Bluestone Camp and Retreat near Hinton, West Virginia. This weekend retreat will include workshops, discussions, outdoor activities, and worship that will inspire us to act as stewards of the land. At the event we will also commission young adults in the Eco-Stewards Program, who will have just completed a week-long training on ecological stewardship principles and practices in West Virginia.
