Planning Calendar Update

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.
