Looking Ahead with the Presbytery of Ohio and The Machen Retreat and Conference Center:
The annual Presbytery of Ohio Youth Camp is July 9-14 for ages 9-18. Brochures are available in the church lobby. This camp is in need of three counselors for the week: a male, a female, and someone who can be the waterfront assistant (helping with boating).
Over the next four months, The Machen Retreat and Conference Center will host various conferences for teens, singles, families, and women. A bulletin insert has been provided and there are some in the church lobby. If you would like to participate in one or more of the camps, please pick up a flyer and contact the appropriate person for information and registration.
