It’s a great joy and privilege to dwell in the place where young lives experience such blessing!
Albany Presbytery offers summer camperships to encourage participation by students from our
churches. Our grants come in two sizes – $250 or $100 – depending on a parent/guardian’s
certification of need. Funds go directly to the camps, toward the student’s account. Our 2-part
application forms will go up on the presbytery website beginning Feb. 1.
Full details of the program may be found in the Mission Committee report to the
January presbytery meeting. I will be happy to take questions. Email me
Speaking of Camp Hebron, proceeds from its sale are what now provide these camperships. At
the current rate of draw-down, I expect the arrangement to last plus-or-minus 5 more years.
But, Lord willing, demand will continue beyond then. So, what will the Lord have us do next?
