On March 2, Potomac Conference’s Camp Blue Ridge in Montebello, Va., officially reopened after temporarily closing for regular business hours last season. Camp leadership will now host their first group—MissionFest—from March 12–21 and celebrate with a grand reopening March 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The grand reopening event will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, camp tour, food and family fun activities.

Most teachers can’t wait to be off for the summer. No more grading, lesson planning, noisy classrooms or ringing bells. Shortly after summer hits, however, many teachers begin to miss their students, classrooms and joy that being a Christian school teacher brings. Some of them, like Takoma Academy Life Sciences teacher Shaun Robinson (pictured), seek out professional development opportunities, seminars or workshops to help them add more resources to their educational toolbox.

“When I am able to see [art] and how it relates to a message, I grasp it a lot better. ... The majority of my generation and later are more visual and kinesthetic learners. Times are changing, and we should definitely adjust and adapt,” says Jyremy Reid (pictured), Potomac Conference’s communication specialist intern, who also hosts the new Potomac People podcast.

Reid recently painted “Mercy, Justice” while Reed Richardi, associate pastor of Potomac’s New Market (Va.) church, preached on Zephaniah 3:17.
