Adult Weekends at Westminster Woods are for those that need to re-center on God, re-connect with friends new and old, and re-energize for the norms of everyday life. These weekends are filled with stimulating speakers, opportunities to connect with nature, off site exploration, contemplative worship, and rest. Each year we invite different speakers to bring insight into the biblical text and how it connects with the world around us. We look forward to seeing you here at the Woods.
Head Start: A chance to get a jump on slowing down. Come to Women’s Weekend a day early to help prepare you for the restorative work God will provide over the weekend.
Registration for 2020 weekends is open!

Women’s Weekend Speaker: Rev. BrennA HEsch
Rev. Brenna Hesch is a northwest native who grew up in the cold and rainy landscapes of Anchorage and Seattle. A graduate of the University of Washington with two degrees in Political Science and Law, Society, and Justice, she began her professional career in the relief and development field.
She later began to work for University Presbyterian Church in Seattle as a ministry coordinator for young adults before following her calling to Fuller Theological Seminary where she obtained her M.Div. It was at Fuller that she discovered her love and gift of preaching and communicating. First as a student and then as a TA and instructor for the Homiletics Department, and finally as the recipient of the Parish Preaching Award. As the recipient of the Fraser Fellowship she spent a year traveling Europe studying preaching and faith development in secular societies and among the millennial generation.
Brenna took her first call as the associate pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa and currently is the associate pastor for Seattle Community Church, a multi-ethnic congregation located in Seattle, Washington. She has a deep heart for helping women find God’s presence and peace in the midst of their busy day to day lives, while at the same time empowering women to make a difference for God’s Kingdom.
When she is not working, Brenna enjoys spending time with her dog Rue, going for runs, taking yoga classes, and watching the Masked Singer.
