Camp Northstar – Register Now for Summer

Posted on Mar 17 , 2015 in Classes & Events & Events & Ministries & Youth and Family

Camp Northstar – July 20-24, 2015



Join us on our journey to the summit of Mount Everest! Campers feel the reality of God’s presence as we carry the daily topic through games, art and other activities, songs and movement. Your little climbers will experience:

  • A God that Provides
  • A God that Comforts
  • A God that Forgives
  • A God that Heals
  • A God that Loves

Kids will help create a snowy wonderland of ice caves and tunnels, icicles and snowflakes. The sanctuary will be a field for “snowball fights” and games of co-operation, not competition.

New this year: In addition to songs, we’ll have choreography, skits, and a song with sign language!  We’ll also see KidVid Cinema – videos of kids sharing how God influenced their lives. These are professionally produced and we are excited to discuss them with our campers. Activities build on each other for daily messages.

Also New!  Junior Camp!

Finally! A curriculum created for Junior Campers age 3 to 5 (rising Kindergartners). They will join the whole camp for Base Camp in the morning and Summit Celebration at the end of each day. In between, they will have rotating activities just like the older kids, but won’t be challenged to “keep up.  Limited to 12 campers.


You may register for Camp Northstar on Sundays in Kidz Church or print and complete this form and mail it in.  Camp hours will be from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.  The cost is $75 per child.  Camp is limited to 60 children in senior camp and 12 in junior camp.



Whether you can share 1 day or all week at camp, don’t miss the chance to get in on a new version of Camp Northstar, with all materials professionally created —- a brand new experience. See why your kids love Camp Northstar!

We need Sherpas – leaders for groups of kids, and Activity Leaders for each experience, such as Games Leader. We also offer behind the scenes opportunities to help plan for camp, handle shopping, decorating, etc.

Please consider how you can be involved! Contact Camp Director Amelia Hodge at ameliahodge123@gmail.com.

Join us this Wednesday, April 1st for a Communion service celebrating oneness, forgiveness and the joy of a life lived in God. As we quietly dedicate and consecrate our lives we will share a common meal of bread and grape juice that will be embraced by chanting, silence, prayers and a celebration of our unity with all life. As we walk the journey of Holy Week towards Easter, this ancient ritual will help us awaken the Christ of our very nature.

About the Artist

Gentle Thunder lives in Mount Shasta, California, yet enchants audiences worldwide with her distinctive sound and authentic presence. Gentle Thunder’s musical journey began as a rock-n-roll drummer at the age of fourteen. While recording as a drummer in Memphis, TN, she became captivated by the hammer dulcimer. In 1998, she branched out as a solo artist and released her first hammer dulcimer album and then, in 2004, her first solo Native American flute album.

Known for her heartfelt signature sound, recognizable when heard, Gentle Thunder’s flute playing has been compared to world-renown Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai who is distinct in his own sound. She says she allows herself “to be played as an instrument through which Great Spirit speaks.”

Her 3rd CD release, Beyond Words with Will Clipman and AmoChip Dabney, was GRAMMY nominated Best New Age Album alongside Enya, Peter Kater, Andreas Vollenweider and Enigma. Gentle Thunder has recorded and produced 6 albums to date. She has offered her musical flute prayers for Amma during Darshan, the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, and Dr. Masuru Emoto in ceremony.

The Spring Celebration Concert on April 11th will be her first and only concert in the Atlanta area during this tour and promises to be an unforgettable evening.

“I love helping people come home to themselves and remember their true essence through the music I play,” says Gentle Thunder. “It is my greatest joy to be of service in this way.”

Eric Alan, Music Director at Jefferson Public Radio, calls the experience of Gentle Thunder “a glorious musical journey that’s a sharing of deep spirit more than a mere performance.” And Bette Timm from Aura Magazine describes it as “music that calls you back home to your heart . . . unique and inspiring.”

Gentle Thunder’s current focus is working as a musical intuitive with groups and individuals, offering vibrational alignment / sound healing sessions, flute lessons, and occasional concerts. She is available for sessions while in the Atlanta area through April. Information and bookings: (530) 925-4495 / GT@GentleThunder.com and visit GentleThunder.com.


Workshop: It’s My Story and It’s Sticking to Me – April 12

Posted on Mar 05 , 2015 in Classes & Events & Events

Jerry TroyerSunday, April 12 ~ 1:00-2:30 pm

$20 donation 

Your story is what you believe and feel, and tell yourself, about your past, others, your self, and even God. The choices you make each day, often based on your story, can be affected by guilt, shame, and regret about a mess you made, being adopted, your sexual orientation, or other life experiences. As you recognize and begin to change your story, to one that admits, accepts and embraces who you truly are, your life begins to change–for the better.

Additionally, we know that “it is done unto us as we believe,” but also as we feel. We will not receive all the good Life has for us if we do not feel deserving.

This interactive workshop challenges you to go inside, beginning to identify and heal beliefs and feelings that no longer serve you.

“With refreshing honesty and a gentle tender spirit, Jerry Troyer brings the reader on a journey toward enlightenment that all can relate to here and now…His book opens the heart!” –Rev. Edwene Gaines, bestselling author of The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity, A Simple Guide to Unlimited Abundance.

Coming Out to OurselvesRev. Jerry Troyer, author of Coming OUT to Ourselves, is the senior minister of Joyful Living Spiritual Center in San Diego.

“Coming out to himself” has allowed Rev. Jerry to heal his relationship with his Higher Pow releasing habits that no longer serve him.

About Jerry

A native of San Diego County, Rev. Jerry Troyer holds a Masters Degree in Religious Studies from Emerson Theological Institute.  He has been senior minister of Joyful Living Spiritual Center in San Diego since 2005. Growing up in a very conservative Lutheran church required Rev. Jerry to admit, accept and embrace the truth of who he is as a gay man, which, along with his journey though a family member’s substance abuse, is the foundation for his book, Coming Out to Ourselves…Admitting, Accepting and Embracing Who We Truly Are.

Rev. Jerry’s workshop, “It’s My Story, and It’s Sticking To Me,” invites, encourages and even challenges participants to look at what they really believe, and feel, about their past, God (Spirit, the Universe, the Divine), and people in their lives, deciding what still makes sense and what does not.  Other topics covered include one’s “rules” (and what happens when they are broken), and opportunities for forgiveness.

Rev. Jerry is a featured columnist in the San Diego Gay and Lesbian News (http://www.sdgln.com), with a new article published every other Tuesday, most recently February 17, 2015.  Rev. Jerry and his partner of 29 years, also named Jerry, live in La Mesa with their Golden Retriever, “Roxie.”

Rev. Jerry is also the founder of the LGBTQ Spiritual Summit, (http://www.lgbtqspiritualsummit.org).  With more and more spiritual organizations accepting members of the LGBTQ community, are we ready to reconnect with our spiritual side?  And do we need to heal our relationship with our higher self (God, Spirit, the Universe, our Higher Power)?  One’s “spiritual practice” might include attendance in an organized service, but it may also be taking a mindful walk in the desert, or recognizing the worth and value in each person by working for social justice.
