Two Week Update from Benton Harbor
A new youth group leader has recently been hired at First Prez and is scheduled to begin work on September 14th. Gentry Phillips, the coordinator of the summer youth leadership program that ended in July, will meet regularly with our youth twice a month for Sunday school and once a month for youth group. We are excited for his arrival and our continued partnership with him.
In celebration of a new principal at Morton Montessori, a 1st-8th grade located across the street from First Presbyterian Church, colorful walls have been painted in the office by First Prez staff members Lee Ann H. and Julie Brien. The change of leadership has brought much joy into the community and enrollment has increased in the school. First Presbyterian Thursday night’s prayer group had the opportunity to walk around and pray throughout the school for two weeks in anticipation for a great school year. Praying with the principal and secretary was a remarkable time of joy, hope and love. We are all excited for this new partnership to grow and bloom throughout the year.
