Kootenay Faith Fest 2019

Jun 21-23
Kootenay Faith Fest 2019

This June, as spring turns to summer, United Church people from across the Pacific Mountain Region are invited to spend time with the network that was formerly Kootenay Presbytery – exploring community, relationship and covenant in our evolving church times.

Join the Festival!

At Kootenay Faith Fest 2019, Key Note Speaker Rev. Carol Howard Merritt travels north from Chattanooga, Tennessee – inviting us into creative, reflective conversation, re-imagining and healing in our progressive, multi-generational Christian contexts. Diverse Workshop Leaders offer sessions to engage our body, mind and spirit. Youth meet together in age-specific program and community, and special time is reserved for now-and-future Cluster building across the generations and ministry areas. Freedom for visiting, adventuring, and being with one another is held in the spaces between.
