Former Clover Hill Reformed Church Student Doing Mission Work in Uganda

Each year the Clover Hill Church provides a small scholarship to our college students and, when I present the checks I speak of our college students as our product, our gift, our missionaries to the future!

And I believe that is true, as I watch them take their places in business and education and medicine and the other vocations to which God has called them.  The world, in many places and ways, is so much better for all that God done through the men and women who had their souls shaped and nurtured in Clover Hill!

Here is the story of one of them, one of us, Jason Reinhardt.  Jason, Jalina, Drew and Blake will soon be leaving to serve God, on our behalf, in Uganda.  Please read, share and pray over this, and if you can provide and support for them in their work that would be wonderful!

Come with other sisters in Christ for a two-day, two-night trip through New York State, tracing the steps of our historical mothers and sisters of faith.
 
Along the way we'll share our own stories, build relationships, and have deep conversations. We'll visit historic and sacred sites and engage in theological and biblical discussions. We'll pray, reflect, and worship as we celebrate a rich legacy of faith.
 
Join us for this Sankofa journey as we look back to understand the past in order to move forward.
 
Join the journey and come to new gratitude, joy, and hope for all God calls us to be as women of faith in the 21st century.
