Due to the current best practices of safe-distancing, we will NOT be holding our Pesach Celebrations the weekend of April 10-12. If possible, we will be celebrating a postponed Seder meal together in EskDale on May 7, 2020. However, we will still be observing the Feast of Unleavened Bread at its regular time, which starts the evening of April 8th and continues until the night of the 15th. Enjoy your matzah as you quarantine. ;)
Additionally, we will not be holding regular Sabbath services this week (March 28, 2020). We will hopefully be streaming live (or recording and then posting) worship and John Conrad's Torah Portion, starting at 10:30 AM Sabbath morning. Details will follow both here and on the House of Aaron Facebook as we figure them out. :) Social Distanced Church is new to us.
A big thanks to all who have registered and plan to attend. We look forward to seeing all of you.
We are going to start posting monthly updates, where we will be asking for your participation in surveys, stories and your help in meal setup and cleanup.
Hidden Canyon Retreat is almost full.

EskDale Community and Hidden Canyon Retreat
EskDale – In the high western desert of Utah, 8 miles from the Utah/Nevada border, is the small Christian Community of EskDale. The early pioneers of this community started clearing brush, leveling land, and applying for water rights in 1955. By January of 1958, a school house, 2 story dormitory, 4 dwellings and a kitchen/dining center had been built. Education has always been a major focus of EskDale, and a private school was established in coordination with the community development. Long time associations and friendships were formed in those early years that continue through this day. We are so blessed and grateful for the people that God has brought into our lives; relationships that have stood the test of time as well as new ones still being developed. EskDale continues to provide an opportunity for education with a public junior high, high school and preschool. They have a nationally acclaimed dairy and a robust farming program.
Hidden Canyon Retreat – Tucked away in the foothills of eastern Nevada and in the North Fork Big Wash drainage, lies Hidden Canyon Retreat, owned and operated by EskDale School alumni. This peaceful retreat center with a single story motel building called Roseberry Court, single unit cabins and a large kitchen dining room area, is the perfect place to rest, relax and enjoy God’s creation.
