We’re bringing it together for an epic college summit at Cedars Camps this coming Labor Day weekend and the preparations begin now. This live chat will cover everything you need to know about it! On the fence about attending? Want to know more? Now’s your chance to get the full scoop.
The theme of the summit is “Connection. Inspiration. Action.” It’s all about coming together to share interests, talents, and divine ideas that can positively impact our campuses and our world. We’ll spend the weekend deepening our understanding of Christian Science and exploring how it can support what we are doing now and what we can do in the future.
