Always Being Made New 

This fun event is a fundraiser to help our Lower Susquehanna Synod reach its $150,000 goal to prepare future Christian leaders within the church and the world.

More specifically, the money raised will help fund a week-long leadership training camp that equips young leaders for a life of discipleship. Youth from all over the synod have attended the camp over the past 26 years. Funds are needed to continue allowing first-year participants to attend the camp at no charge.

Monies raised will also be directed to the Lower Susquehanna Synod Youth Ministry Endowment that provides long-term support to youth and family ministries.

Visit the synod website to learn more about the wonderful things that are happening with this campaign.
