“The Mighty One, God, the Lord, has spoken, and summoned the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth.” Psalms 50:1, NRSV

“And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray.” Matthew 6:46, NRSV

The experience of God in the outdoors has long been an important aspect of Church of the Brethren ministries. Located throughout the United States, Brethren camps and other outdoor ministry facilities offer time for renewal and learning for children and adults in the nature and peace of God’s creation.
