UCC Open Church Picnic
Churches from the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the United Church of Christ join for a free potluck, outdoor worship, and a day of camp activities. Contact us for information. Worship is held outdoors at our beloved Vesper Point before gathering for a pot-luck lunch. After the meal, Camp Staff will host a variety of camp activities for families. A day of worship, community and camp appreciation! If you think your church would like to attend, contact our office for more information.
The weekend is a celebration of indigenous ceremony, ingenuity, strength, perseverance, discipline, wisdom, humor, music, dance, storytelling, and games. If you have never met a Native American or if you are Native, this Gathering welcomes you. The Flint Hills Wisdom Keepers Foundation invites you to join a conversation that began in 1979 in Parkville, Missouri. Spiritual leaders from around the world met with tribal Elders to help indigenous people establish their spiritual autonomy and rights and resolve other conflicts with the United States government. After this international summit, Elders from across the country continued to meet near Asheville, North Carolina to celebrate the rich diversity of their cultures. They also discussed social issues like language preservation, sovereignty, and how to dispel stereotypes by teaching others about their cultures and how they have survived. While the main Gathering continued to meet in Asheville, another Wisdom Keepers branch started in Council Grove, Kansas in 2002. Elders and other Presenters have continued the important work of sharing indigenous beliefs and practices for living in harmony with Mother Earth and each other.
