Thornwell Youth Attend the 2010 Montreat Youth Conference


Thornwell youth attended the 2010 Montreat Youth Conference the week of June 6 and as usual, everyone had a terrific time. The conference theme this year was, “In These Waters,” using the week’s activities to remind youth that “God is present in both the stillness and tempests of their days.”


Each evening, Thornwell youth enjoyed meeting with the youth from First Presbyterian Church, St. Marys, GA, during “back home group time” where group members were encouraged to reflect on and share any insights from the day’s lessons and/or activities.


On Wednesday evening, our Thornwell group was invited for a pizza dinner with the youth from Unity Presbyterian Church, Fort Mill, SC, courtesy of Thornwell Board of Visitors members, Bob and Ann Hudspeth. Many thanks to the Hudspeths, to FPC, St. Marys Pastor and Thornwell Trustee, Rick Douylliez, and to Mrs. Nancy Thomas for providing food and accommodations for our Thornwell group.


Montreat Conference Center is located in the beautiful hills of Montreat, NC approximately 20 minutes from Asheville. Each year, Thornwell youth look forward to attending the Montreat Youth Conference for a week of fun, fellowship and spiritual renewal.
