Harvey Cedars is not "just a summer camp.” God has expanded the opportunities for ministering to teens, adults, and families to the point where the Conference is used year-round. Christian schools, church leadership teams, women’s retreats, singles, seniors, home school families—all of these use Harvey Cedars as the place where Christ can meet people and change lives. That’s the good news! The hard part was having enough space for several groups to be accommodated simultaneously or for large groups to have places where they can have break-out sessions.
God's provision through our donors' generosity during the Next Steps campaign allowed us to add rooms to Bayview Lodge (and an elevator for greater accessibility to the second floor) and gave us the opportunity to create more meeting spaces. The renovation of the old gym resulted in the creation of a lounge and game room for families and teens ("The Avenue") and a large group meeting space ("The Cedars").
Now we move on to the next project of renovating the chapel. Under this part of the Major Improvements campaign we will give the chapel a makeover - it has been over 20 years since the old wood theater seats were removed and the carpet was installed! We will improve the lighting and technology, repaint the walls and ceiling, replace the seating, and add new window treatments. There will also be changes to the stage to make this space more flexible when staging events. This transformation will be a much needed upgrade to enhance the worship space- a place where Christ finds people and changes lives.
