Several sessions to enlighten and inspire us from writer and MESA maven, the Rev. Rachel Hackenberg, who’s coming all the way from our national offices in Cleveland for the retreat. Lots of good food. Prayer and worship. Plenty of time to soak in the springs, walk in the desert or visit the spa. Time alone and time with one another. Definitely laughter. An opportunity to rest and rejuvenate right after Easter.
You – if you are a member-in-discernment, approved for ordination pending call, retired, serving in specialized ministry, or currently serving in parish ministry. And your spouse too! If you have kids at home, check the registration form to find how we can best support you and your family in this time away.

All those 14 years of age and older are invited to pack-up their instruments, bring their voices and join us for a weekend of music making at Camp Adams. What we hope will be the First Annual A.M.P Intergenerational Camp Adams Retreat will be held Friday, April 24 – Sunday, April 26.
Music is such a vital part of what we do together when we gather at camp AND so many amazing musicians have gathered here throughout the years that we wanted to set aside a special time for an intentional music gathering.
Supervision for youth 14-17 will be provided by the Educational Ministry Team, but the intention of the retreat is to let the program develop organically amongst attendees and culminate in a worship service on Sunday morning. Come make music, teach and learn with others! Come recharge your batteries by making music in our beautiful forest!
Register by clicking on the red registration button on the home page of the Camp Adams website (campadams.org). If you already have an account in our registration system, you can use it to register for A.M.P. Otherwise, follow the simple instructions to establish an account, which you can use for all future events at Camp Adams! Youth 14-18 will need to register under the Youth A.M.P. designation. All others please register under the Adult A.M.P. designation. Registration fees for the event are $76.50. Scholarships are available for those who express a need.
All those who register will receive more detailed information about the weekend. Plan on arriving between 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Friday the 24th and departing by 2:00 p.m. on Sunday the 26th. Any questions? Email Natalie Becker, Co-Director of Outdoor Ministries, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Participation in a re-occurring program of boundary/ethics awareness training is expected of authorized ministers holding standing in the United Church of Christ. In the Central Pacific Conference, all ministers – active and retired – have been asked to take part in a boundary/ethics awareness workshop once every four years. Our Committee on Ministry (formerly Covenants Ministry Team) strives to offer these workshops on a two-year cycle.
CPC ministers have called for separate, specialized boundary/ethics workshops that address the unique needs and issues of retired clergy. The Committee on Ministry has researched this concept and developed a boundary/ethics program that is more relevant and convenient for our retired clergy. Here are some highlights of the new program:
Retired clergy who have an active ministerial role as interims, supply preachers, Conference leaders or community activists should continue to participate in regular COM boundary/ethics workshops on the normal four-year cycle.
A detailed description of this new program: “Boundary/Ethics Workshops for Retired Clergy” may be found on the Committee on Ministry page on this website.

A great big THANK YOU from all of us at Camp Adams to all the Camp Adams Community!
The Central Pacific Conference is the community of United Church of Christ congregations in Oregon, southern Idaho and southern Washington. We are multiracial and multicultural, open and affirming, and accessible to all.
In this family of 47 congregations our shared commitment is to ministry and mission. The CPC provides spiritual and material resources and encouragement to all our nearly 7,600 members. We put purposes and programs into action by drawing on the experience and talents of all the conference’s members, both lay people and clergy.
The CPC assists and encourages local congregations and their members in working together to explore, communicate, support and pursue the ministry and mission of the church, and provides a channel for effective relationships with the UCC and with other faith communities.
The Central Pacific Conference of the United Church of Christ is one of 39 regional conferences in the 1.5 million member United Church of Christ, a “united and uniting” Protestant denomination in the United States of America.
