Fantastic Retreats Planners Guide

Tue, 02/17/2015 - 15:21

Going on retreat, a practice modeled by Jesus himself (Mark 6:45–46), has long been a cornerstone of Christian faith formation. A retreat provides an intentional time apart to experience a new awareness of the presence of God. It encourages an unhurried pace conducive to rest and relaxation, which allows one to return to daily life renewed for the high call of discipleship. Retreats are great for youth, families, and adult groups, as well as for organizations and sessions.

A good retreat is well organized.  This retreat planner guide from Menucha Conference Center near Portland, Oregon can be adapted for use at any retreat center.  Work with center staff to make sure your retreat is as successful as you dream.

Summer Camp: Community, Faith and Transformation

Tue, 02/17/2015 - 15:21

At summer camp it is impossible to not experience the transformative love of God.  From first thing in the morning as we raise our voices in praise to the quiet devotion conversations in the cabin as the sun goes down, each day is filled and overflowing with the joy of the Lord.  The growth at camp happens at every level.  One child will grow emotionally, learning to navigate new friendships.  Another will grow physically, being challenged by a ropes course.  Another child will grow spiritually, learning that they are loved and forgiven for the first time.  Campers, staff, parents, volunteers, and congregations are all part of this process, allowing children to have a genuine experience of God, which is one of the key factors that will lead to future involvement in a local community of faith.  

Partnering to Share the Gospel: Day Camps at Churches

Tue, 02/17/2015 - 15:21

 Rev. Betty Angelini, Crestfield Camp and Conference Center, Pittsburgh Presbytery

Imagine your church filled with children and youth joyfully singing, laughing and sharing-not just during a week in the summer but throughout the year. Imagine youth and young adults sharing in the leadership responsibilities of such activities. These children, youth and young adults are from your church and from your community, eager to come and be in relationship with caring individuals who share the love of Jesus. This image and the vibrancy that comes with it can be more than just a dream. This vitality is happening in churches within the denomination thanks to a partnership between summer camp sites, local congregations and presbyteries.

Mission Partnerships at Camps
