Join us as we connect all people, God and creation through nature contemplation and communion.

Celebrate the Divine presence in all things as we seek to live in harmony with everyone and everything.  Transform yourself and renew the Earth as we worship together on the beautiful shore of Lake Cochichewick at Rolling Ridge.

Rooted in the Christian tradition, Worship in the Woods is open to people of all faiths and in all stages of the spiritual path.  If nature is your "church", this is the place for you.
For more on nature contemplation, check out Lawrence's blog here

Registration is free, and encouraged.

Check this web page the day before for weather preparation updates.

PLEASE NOTE: Our first gathering is on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd

NOTE: Because of the Christmas holiday, December "Worship in the Woods" is moved to Sunday, December 29th.  

About the leader(s)

Lawrence Jay

As the Executive Director of Rolling Ridge, Lawrence works in partnership with the staff to ensure that the guest experience at the Ridge is top quality.  He also partners with retreat leaders to provide excellent programming at the Ridge, and is available to speak about the ongoing ministry and historic mission of Rolling Ridge as a place of rest, retreat, and transformation.  An ordained American Baptist pastor, he is a graduate of UCLA, Golden Gate Seminary, Franciscan School of Theology, and American Baptist Seminary of the West.  Eco-spirituality is his passion (and was his doctoral dissertation), encouraging everyone to live into the fullness of our connection with nature, God, and all people.
