Each year, Olivia Durham (Covenant OPC, Barre, VT) organizes a team of volunteers from the Presbytery of New York and New England to present the “English for Kids” Bible Camp held in St-Georges de Beauce, Quebec. The camp is associated with those of the same name sponsored by St-Marc’s Reformed Church in Quebec City, where OP Missionary Rev. Ben Westerveld serves as Pastor.
The 2017 team of 20 came from the following OP churches:
- Cape Cod OPC, West Barnstable, MA
- Jeffrey OPC, Jaffrey, NH
- Amoskeag OPC, Manchester, NH
- First Church of Merrimack OPC, Merrimack, NH
- Covenant OPC, Barre, VT
The photos below were shared with us by Rebecca Myers Jacques who is now a wife and mom in the St-Georges church, but served as the first OP Missionary Associate at Ben Westerveld’s church when the “English for Kids” camps started there years ago!
