Our church has been selected by the SDB Women’s Board to receive an SCSC (Summer Christian Service Corps) dedicated service team this summer.
Our SCSC team is Vanessa Ormsby from the Toronto SDB Church and Collin Green from the Milton SDB Church. Both have completed a year of college. This is Vanessa’s first year in SCSC and Collin’s second. Last summer Collin served at the First Hopkinton SDB Church in Rhode Island.
Susie Fox will be the Project Director with primary responsibility for the team while they are here. The other members of our church’s SCSC committee helping with the project are Pastor Robert Van Horn and Marissa Patterson (who was in SCSC herself for 5 years when she was in college).
The SCSC team will begin their summer with an extensive training session with the other SCSC teams at Camp Harley Sutton in western New York from June 12-20, 2019. Project Director, Susie Fox, will attend 4 days of the training session as well June 12-15th. Collin and Vanessa will arrive in Columbus on Thursday, June 20, 2019 and be here until July 25, 2019 when they leave for SCSC evaluation which will be held in Lancaster, PA.
