The Presbytery of Huntingdon
Huntingdon Presbytery is excited to see young adults leading and serving in its own congregations and others throughout the church. From small rural congregations where one or two young adults teach At State College Presbyterian Church, a full range of programs engage teens, college students, and young adults. Recently a young and young-at-heart group worked to repair homes damaged by flooding along the Susquehanna River. Another member of the congregation recently completed a year of service as a Young Adult Volunteer.
Camp Krislund, a ministry of the Huntingdon, Northumberland, and Carlisle presbyteries, is having an impact on young adults and giving them the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Each summer approximately 25 staffers come to camp to provide leadership and to grow in faith. The counselors grow as they encourage others and as they themselves are mentored. A summer staffer explains, “For me, seeing the power of Jesus as he shapes and molds the campers catapulted my faith even more than being spiritually fed by the various chaplains each week.”
Following an extensive capital improvement program, Camp Krislund now serves all ages with a variety of summer and four-season accommodations. The facilities allow for children to enjoy rustic cabins in the summer, college students to have a great fall slumber-party outing, and families to have a quiet winter retreat in private cabins.
The presbytery serves 5,632 members of 48 congregations.
