Dear Friends and Members of Penn Central:

Recently you learned of the PCC Board of Director’s decision to close Hartman Center. There has been reaction to this news, as expected. The grief has expressed itself in a number of ways – denial, anger, tears, and sadness. At the same time we have heard wonderful memories of Hartman from far and wide and a sense of positive possibilities for the future for Outdoor Ministries. In response to some of the questions raised this past week, we have updated our Frequently Asked Questions. Hartman Center FAQ Please take the time to read through the document, since we think it answers many questions we have been hearing.

Rev. Carrie Call, PhD
Transitional Conference Minister
