Dear Presbytery Family,

We greet you today with hope during this season of Lent! This short edition of Staying Connected highlights upcoming events and ministry opportunities at Montgomery Camp.
Spring Youth Retreat
Trail Mix of Life
Trail mix is sweet and salty, just like life. Our lives are filled with joys, worries, hardships and ordinary times. All sixth through 12th-graders are welcome to join us from April 21 to 23, at Montgomery Center for a study on Philippians 4:4-9, as we look at the trail mix of our lives. Click here to register.
