Camp Registration Form 2019


Dear Families,

We are excited to open the registration for Savannah Presbytery’s 2019 summer camp season (June 17-21).  We invite you to consider camp as a wonderful growth opportunity for those who attend.

It is amazing how life changing these summer days along the Savannah River can be.  When people come together and seek to live by the values of the Kingdom of God, camp becomes a thin place between heaven and earth.  In just a few, very full days at New Ebenezer Retreat Center in Rincon, we experience creation as God intended.  We commit to loving others as God has loved us; we commit to seeing Jesus in one another; and we renew our covenant with God’s creation as we reconnect with the great outdoors.  It is no wonder that it is so hard to leave, to say “goodbye” to those people who have shared with us a taste of the Kingdom: seeking justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with God (and each other!).

We have both attended many church camps and retreats and look forward to making this a great camp week for you.  The enclosed packets you may have received in the mail and/or links above give you all the information you need.  All registration materials and payments should be returned to the office of Savannah Presbytery.  Should you have registration questions, please contact Deanie at: or 912-223-2271.  If you have questions about the programs during the week, contact Proctor at: or 478-595-2540.  If you would like to volunteer as a camp counselor, call either of us!

If past experience is any indication, your camper will make memories at New Ebenezer that will last a lifetime.

Grace and Peace,

Dear Friends,

I know many of you are like me and are a little overwhelmed right now, BUT I NEED YOU TO RSVP TO ME BY TOMORROW AS TO YOUR AND YOUR RULING ELDER(S) ATTENDING MONDAY’S CONVERSATION ON THE FUTURE OF SAVANNAH PRESBYTERY!!! Chairs of Teams please ask your members to respond and come. Clerks come if you can and invite other session members, please RSVP. Church Administrators remind your minister(s)

We need to have a count for the restaurant. Plus we have invited two members of the Presbyterian Foundation to help us look at finances in our future. Right now I only have 17 names on the list. I am aware of the busyness of everyone and I am sure Monday is not a great day to do this, but you are needed for this one time event.

I thank you in advance for your responding.


Grace and Peace,
