LAMBEC Capital Campaign

The Camping Association of the Presbyteries of Northwestern Pennsylvania is conducting a $100,000 capital campaign to restore the water system for Camp Lambec.  The system needs a DEP-approved overhaul, and we are starting those repairs with an approved contractor.  This is an expensive overhaul, but it is necessary to continue the ministry to youth and families.  As such, the Board has authorized a $100K campaign to address this and other items of deferred maintenance.  The Board is committed to the continued operation of Camp Lambec, as we believe firmly that this ministry provides unique and powerful discipleship opportunities for participants.  Individual donations can be made online using this link.   Church contributions can be coordinated through the Shenango Presbytery office.


News From the Churches

GriefShare Program

No matter what the circumstances, grief recovery is a painful process.  A GriefShare seminar/support group is being hosted and sponsored by Calvin Presbyterian Church.  The program will be facilitated by Ginny Brest.  The first session is scheduled for Sunday, February 4 from 1:300-3:30 p.m. in the church parlor.  The group will meet each Sunday afternoon (except April 1, Easter Sunday) for 13 weeks, concluding on May 6 .  While participants are encouraged to complete the 13-week program if possible, attendance is not mandatory each week.  The program is free and open to anyone in the community (and beyond) because we understand how deeply grief and loss hurts people and families.  This is a place where many people have found they can begin to put their lives back together again.  The program is open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one to help them through the grief process.  If you, or someone you know, would benefit from this program, please contact Ginny Brest at 724-758-3838 or the church office at 724-758-4258 or by email at calvinellwood@gmail.com.  You can also view the GriefShare website at www.griefshare.org for additional information.
