GET CONNECTED with our CHURCH FAMILY … responding to human need

Congregation-Wide Family Retreat!

Friday, October 4 – Sunday, October 6, 2019
Pearlstone Center in Reistertown, Maryland

Awe & Wonder

Plans are well underway for Lewinville’s third annual All Church Retreat.   We’ve chosen an earlier weekend in October to take full advantage of the beautiful fall weather and all the retreat center has to offer such as hiking, fishing, a ropes course, and more!

Our facilitator will be Rev. Ashley Goff.  She is the pastor at Arlington Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Arlington, Virginia, and ordained in the United Church of Christ. Ashley graduated from Union Theological Seminary in New York City where she fell in love with the art of liturgy.  She lives with deep gratitude for several communities which have formed her along the way: Denison University, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, the Open Door Community, Rikers Island jail, and Church of the Pilgrims (PCUSA). Ashley also finds life in running, urban farming, watching TV, and vinyasa yoga. Ashley and her family live in Arlington, Virginia. She blogs at
