Welcome to Elijah's Harbor

Coronavirus Update

The Old Testament account of Elijah shares how the prophet, when faced with the trials and stresses of the world, would seek sanctuary in the mountains - to step back and draw closer to God. Today, Elijah's Harbor invites you to once again find sancturary in the mountains, away from the distractions of the world.
