Monday, February 1, 2021: LOVEboldly

LOVEboldly exists to empower willing Christians and LGBTQ+ individuals to

step towards loving one another more boldly. Faith and Sexuality

conversations are not easy. They touch deeply held beliefs, emotions and

experiences and often create tension. LOVEboldly seeks reconciliation and

healing in the center of that tension. 

Heidi Weaver-Smith is the founder and president of LOVEboldly.

CAMP in times of COVID-19

As the 2021 Camp season approaches, our camp leaders are working to

help navigate all the questions and safety responses. Christmount

Executive Director, Rob Morris, has been working with our Ministries

The Association of Outdoor Ministry continues to hold gatherings once a                                                         month as new questions come forward (Example: Do camps needs to                                                                   require the vaccine for people to attend?)

Retirement of Kate Epperly

Our amazing Coordinator of Justice & Advocacy for Family & Children's Ministries has                                        decided to retire. We want to celebrate the good work Kate brought to Ministries Across                                      Generations. She met with many of our relational ministries working on issues around gun                                  violence, domestic violence, refugees and immigration, xenophobia, racism, and more. In                                  addition, she continued her responsibilities as a daily after school caregiver for her two                                        grandsons. Thank you, Kate! You are already missed!
