Pathways Retreat exists thanks to the generosity of our community. While financial support is essential, it isn't the only way you can be involved. Pathways has many opportunities for volunteers to participate in the life of the community.
Consider contributing your time and talents to support the mission of Pathways Retreat. In these days of polarization, pandemic, stress, and uncertainty, Pathways offers rest, reflection and renewal. One of our guests recently said:
"As always, when I come here I experience God's presence and refreshment. There is so much peace on the property. I am able to come as I am and be with God."
We're building a database of people who might be willing to help. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey.
This doesn't obligate you to do anything. We'll use this to send out specific requests as needs arise. For example, occasionally we'll have a storm come through and take down a tree in the woods. We'd love to know who in our community has a chain saw and might come out to aid in cleaning up the downed tree. We also imagine there are people who care about removing invasive species, and would find it satisfying to spend a few hours pulling hairy vetch before it goes to seed in the summer. There are also less strenuous opportunities to help, and things to do indoors.
The survey lets you share your interests and availability so that we're better able to match you with tasks that connect to your interests, and perhaps with others who share your interests.
