Around 80 youth and youth leaders gathered at Laurel Ridge for a weekend of service and learning. The weekend included several environmental workshops and an opportunity to work on trails and around the lake. The time together also included campfires, hiking, fishing, worship, and a square dance! Special thanks to the Environmental Stewardship Task Force for planning this event and to the Laurel Ridge staff for their wonderful work. We give thanks to God for the youth of our province, for the ministry of the Environemental Stewardship Task Force & Laurel Ridge, and for the blessing of this retreat.
