Welcome to Elijah's Harbor

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.
