Confirmation Field Trip

Our confirmands and mentors went on a "church history field trip" this past Saturday to Camp Curtin Memorial-Mitchell United Methodist Church in Harrisburg. We were delighted to hear from Rev. Bradley and Mrs. Davis about the story of the church - located on the site of the largest Civil War training ground, a Civil War hospital that served both the Blue and the Grey, and the story of the merging of an historically Anglo and historically African-American congregation. And, they are involved in some powerful ways in their community, including providing housing for homeless families.
