"Awesome God" Performed for the Glory of God by Kendra & Tom Taylor
Recorded @ Sunday Worship Nov 18th 2007
The Peckville UMC has such a rich history with and a
deep love for Sky Lake that we though it would only be fitting if our
church had its own web page dedicated to Sky Lake.
Over the years since 1949 many campers and counselors
came from Peckville. In fact Jeremy Lucas and Sarah Taylor have spent
entire summers working and counseling at the camp. Bonny Taylor was
among the first camper at Sky Lake from Peckville.
But it is the winter retreats that sealed a love affair
between Peckville UMC and Sky Lake. It started back in 1969 when the
young adults and the youth of the church had the first retreat. Riley
was brand new and it those early years it was filled with teenagers on
one side and young adults on the other. Does anyone remember that our
only snack for the weekend was our nightly popcorn and smore's? How
that has changed. After a time of not having the winter retreats during
the 1980's Ron Lucas lit a spark under the dry tinder of the old
tradition and it has come to a full roar of excitement ever since.
Take a look at the photos and stories on this page to
remember, and also look at this content to get excited to become part
of the experience now, ...... The experience that is Sky Lake Winter
What happens here shapes tomorrow, through God's Grace
Peckville UMC is living proof.
