Everything from afternoon meetings to weekend conferences to week long retreats. We have a variety of living and meeting spaces.

UPDATE ON BISHOP CATE WAYNICK CENTER FOR YOUTH: As the Waycross board met last night, having heartfelt discussions about logistics, budgets, communication and the search committee’s progress, it was brought to our attention the need to share with you the status of the Bishop Cate Waynick Center for Youth.  We are excited to be the designated site to honor Bishop Waynick. As the plans develop and evolve we want to ensure this honor is carried out intentionally and with respect. With this in mind we are meeting with Bishop Waynick after Easter to ensure that what we do aligns with the Bishop’s vision and needs for youth. We will keep you posted on our progress throughout this this process.
