Greenwood Ministries Association On Tuesday, December 6th at 9:00 am, the Presbytery will meet at Westminster Presbyterian Church in downtown Grand Rapids to vote on the future of Camp Greenwood. The Greenwood Ministries Association (GMA) has already raised pledges of over $100,000 to support camping and to create other ministries starting in January of 2017. (Praise God!) What we need is for the Presbytery to vote to allow this new non profit to run camp. The proposal from the Presbytery leadership team is to lease the camp property to the GMA for two years and to appoint an administrative commission to evaluate performance and land use needs. At the end of two years, the Presbytery is recommending that part of the camp property is to be sold and that money to be used for Presbytery administration, mission and other projects other than camping ministry. Please talk to Pastor Karen for more details. If you would like to support the GMA at the December 6th meeting, please register to go at www.LakeMichiganPresbytery.org. There is also a Tuesday, November 29th 7 pm Presbytery discussion meeting at North Park Church in Grand Rapids.
For more information on GMA go to GreenwoodMinistries.org.
