Lake Arrowhead
Community Presbyterian
Function, Fellowship and Food!
Host, Pastor Bill Stanley and the staff and volunteers at Lake Arrowhead Community Presbyterian Church provided a venue filled with as much attention and accommodation as one could ever imagine.
Paul Knopf spoke of the life-changing impact that Triennium had on the lives of the students. The Lake Arrowhead Community Presbyterian Praise Band lead us in music. The Triennium Team lead choreographed praise songs that they learned from their recent event in Indiana. The breakfast and lunch meals were thoughtfully planned and lavishly displayed! The Vital Congregations Imitative Team shared an overview of the 2020 start date. Moderator, Jeff Mague assured that the board actions were thorough and ruled upon in a timely manner. Dessert was provided by the Triennium Team as a thank you for the support from the Presbytery of Riverside.
