Summer Camp

The purpose of summer camp is to encounter relationships, enrich spiritual growth, and experience transformation as we serve our God together.   This will be a designated time where we are with like minded people.  We will learn more about God through classes, discussion groups, singing, devos, and nightly lessons.  Hope to see you there! 

“So that you may Believe.” John pens these words at the end of his gospel in John 20:31.   This year’s camp theme is “Believe.” We need to be convicted or believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and be able to share that good news with others!  At camp we will encounter Jesus through classes and lessons from the book of John. We will grow in our relationships through discussion groups, sports teams, and group opportunities.  You will be blessed by attending summer camp this year. Let us grow together in God’s word so that you may believe!
