Registration 2017 (Printable Form)

Seattle Mennonite Women invite you to join us at beautiful Camp CAMREC. Living a Life of Gratitude: The praises and petitions of our lives rise and fall with the tides of “good” news and “bad” news. How do we anchor the highs and bolster the lows in order to find a steadiness of gratitude in our lives with God, neighbor, and self? We will explore: gratitude abundant, gratitude grounded, gratitude wrestled, and gratitude begotten.

Pastor Megan Ramer, of Seattle Mennonite Church, will be  our leader.   Megan joined the ministry team of Seattle Mennonite Church as Lead Pastor in September 2015, after a decade of pastoral ministry in Chicago. She is a graduate of Iliff School of Theology in Denver CO and Goshen College before that, as well as an alum of the Intermenno Trainee Program in Germany and Switzerland. Somewhere in there, Megan made her home in Seattle for a few glorious years of exploring all that the city and surrounding gorgeous landscape have to offer. She is excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest, and eager to bring her passion for ministry to the SMC pastoral team. Reading and hiking are some of her favorite restorative activities. She also enjoys making baby quilts, going to concerts, frequenting the theatre to see her actor husband, Jon Stutzman, perform, and going on traveling adventures both large and small.
