Getaway 2019

There is no better way to connect with the Moreland community than at our decades-long tradition, the Moreland Annual Getaway! This is a weekend filled with learning, time on the beach, visits to the Tillamook Creamery, hikes, golf, games, relaxing with others, a talent show, fellowship around meals and worship.

Studies have shown a ONE WEEKEND away, spiritual retreat, has as much, if not more, positive impact on your life emotionally, relationally and spiritually as attending a weekly gathering with your faith community (i.e. worship, small group). Join this year’s getaway weekend to make meaningful memories and share transformational moments with our family of Spirit.

This year’s special guest speaker is Cynthia O’Brien.

Cynthia O’Brien is the Reverend at First Presbyterian Church of Woodburn. Ordained as a minister in 1993, she holds a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary and degrees in Choral Music and Journalism from the University of Southern California. O’Brien is Oregon’s first certified Better Angels moderator.

In her work with Better Angels, O’Brien leads “Talking Across the Political Divide” and “Red Blue” workshops which aim to bring conservatives and
liberal/progressives together for conversations aimed to build mutual acceptance.
