Can we really Play during a Pandemic?  Absolutely!  Your wellbeing depends on it!

You and your ministry are of immense value to our presbytery and to this world.  We want to support you in your call.

Join us as together we explore ways to live into the love and call of ministry from a place of wholeness and renewed energy.
