We do that in a lot of different ways, from simply sitting down and having a meal to just talking about life together. We gather and create relationships.” LAPEER COMMUNITY F CUS PRESENTED BY MCYC Offers Year-Round Fellowship By Alex Petrie “The Camp is like a Lighthouse” KEVIN O’SULLIVAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR For more information about MCYC, visit their website at www.mcyc.org.
