Life on a Star 1 Family Conference 2022

August 14, 2022 to August 21, 2022

2022 Star Island Update

3 atoms contain infinity. Water can be fresh, ocean or cistern. We need it to live and yet we’re vulnerable to it. Our Minister will lead a Water Ingathering Ceremony and our Theme Speaker will discuss Portsmouth’s history and culture and how it can be protected from sea level rise.


LOAS I, 2023

Youth Programming

We offer daily children’s programming from infant to high school, with at least two adults leading each group. Parent volunteers, in partnership with our youth group leaders, will enjoy various activities including rowing to the neighboring island, helping out during children’s social hour and tie-dying. There is also the traditional Cardboard Boat Race which always needs spectators!
