Chesapeake Conference

Story by Iris Argueta

Students from Chesapeake Conference's Atholton Adventist Academy in Columbia, Md., recently participated in “Go Green With ADRA” to commemorate National Arbor Day, which is observed on the final week in April. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) launched the “Go Green With ADRA” initiative to inspire young people to learn about the benefits of planting trees for more sustainable and livable communities.

Chesapeake Conference is gearing up for this year’s camp meeting, “The Gathering: Occupy Till He Comes,” which is set to take place June 13–17 on the campus of Highland View Academy in Hagerstown, Md. This year marks the return to an in-person event after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the conference to switch to a virtual format for the past three years.

“The number one question I have received lately from our Chesapeake constituents is, ‘Are we going to have camp meeting in person this year?’ The resounding answer is, ‘Yes!’” says Andre Hastick, executive secretary and camp meeting coordinator.

To honor our mothers and fathers in May and June, respectively, Thomas and Hannah Luttrell—the contributors of the May/June 2023 “Parenting Paradigm” feature—interviewed two students from Chesapeake Conference’s Spencerville Adventist Academy (Md.). Victoria Imbraguglio (’26) and Jared Rivera (’27) share what their parents mean to them and give words of advice to all parents.

Spencerville Adventist Academy (SAA) recently held its second annual Career Day for the entire student body, grades pre-K to 12.

“The theme ‘Called to Serve,’ helped students understand that God is calling them to serve Him no matter what course of study or profession they decide to pursue,” says Carmen Esposito, SAA’s guidance counselor.
