PORTSMOUTH, NH (04/01/2015) -- Discover, delight, and unwind off the coast of New Hampshire for a week in August on Star Island, an ecumenical retreat center in a location of surpassing beauty. Two Star Gathering weeks are reserved for United Church of Christ programs, which will be August 1-8 and 8-15 in 2015. Activities are oriented for adults, children, and youth.
Join a Star Gathering, and make it a destination week. Live on "island time," enjoying simple pleasures. Carry a candle lantern to evening chapel, following the steps of villagers long ago.
Louise Lind can visit your church to make a presentation. Write her at email@example.com and put "STAR" in the subject line.
