YOUTH

If we believe that the faith development of our youth, as well as providing them with events and activities that will help them grow personally and spiritually is important, we need to support our words with our actions by providing guidance for planning and leading these events.  Please consider using your gifts and talents to help our PEVA Youth and Young Adults.  CONTACT: Amanda Pine a.pine@kgpc.org

If you want to make a difference and have a voice in the planning of the events for YOU, sign up to be part of the leadership team.  Make your voice heard, learn leadership skills, meet new friends, spend time at camp and most importantly grow in your faith by becoming part of the leadership team!  Use the gifts and talents God has given you to help others.

KRISLUND - MISSION WORK CAMP OPPORTUNITY

This is an exciting opportunity for groups to come to central Pennsylvania in mission to help repair and improve the homes of needy neighbors while lodging comfortably in the lodges of Krislund and using our camp for recreation, fellowship and worship. Working as the hands and feet of Christ, groups of all types (ages, skills and talents) can grow in faith, fun, and service.
It is our mission to minister to these folk by providing teams to assist in the tasks of painting, landscaping, installing ramps, removing trip hazards, etc. We will be partnering with other local churches and social services to identify those we can help most and to match the need with the skills and abilities of volunteer groups. And we will be providing those teams with pleasant comfortable surroundings and good meals! Everybody wins! For more informaion, please read our borchure or visit our website (www.krislund.org), or contact Randy Mcmunn, Mission Outreach Director - email: mcmunn@krelund.org, cell: 804-273-0970.
