Apr. 7 — Camp deBenneville Pines

Mark your calendars for our Annual All Fellowship Weekend at Camp deBenneville Pines, April 7-9. With Rev. Meghan and Adrienne McCord planning the festivities, this will be great fun for all ages. This is a sure way for newcomers to get to
know us more deeply. Gorgeous hikes, food, fires in the lodge, singing, dancing, talent show, crafts, and surrounded by beautiful wilderness, this is a spiritual home for many of us. Heated cabins and hot showers mean this is cozy camping.

Registrations will be open in January.
