There is a summer ministry opportunity open at Locust Lake State Park for this summer.  The PA Council of Churches has supported a program of chaplains in PA’s state parks for 60 years.  The Schuylkill Association of the PA Southeast Conference supports the chaplain at Locust Lake State Park.

The Committee is looking for a lay or ordained chaplain to serve at Locust Lake State Park on weekends from Memorial Day, May 31, through Labor Day, September 6, 2021.  It is a part-time position.  Duties of the chaplain include leading Sunday worship in the park, and walking through the campground, visiting campers in a socially distanced manner on a Friday or Saturday.  All ministry takes place outdoors, so it is among the safest ministries!

Worship draws many kinds of people from many different church backgrounds.

Training is provided.
