Dear Friends of Stony Point Center,
We have appreciated your well wishes, thoughts and prayers for
Stony Point Center (SPC) to rebound during the COVID pandemic.
We wanted to see each and every one of you again! Despite our
positive outlook, COVID continued to rise throughout the summer
with soaring numbers into the fall. We have not been able to re-open
in the way we envisioned with small groups and well thought out
COVID safety measures in place.
As with other retreat and conference centers, indeed, the entire
hospitality and travel industry, we struggled to bring in revenue.
Stony Point Center is owned by the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA).
The PMA has suffered a substantial financial setback because of how hard
the COVID pandemic hit our conference and retreat center. The PMA,
our leadership and staff are heartbroken that further operational cuts will ensue.
Although some unknowns remain, the next steps are clear to share.
