Family Camp

Thank you to all who made it to Family Camp this year! Our conversations and fellowship during meals, activities, campfires and free time were wonderful. For those of you who were unable to attend this year, you were missed. We hope you will consider camping with us next year for Family Camp and during the year with your churches and families.

Our speaker this year was Pastor Jonathan Bratt. His message series was enlightening and challenged us to think within the context of the Word and outside our typically mindsets. How can we as Christians interact, bless and encourage those who are not following Christ? Let us follow Christ’s example of love and kindness, accepting those who may not normally be accepted and leading them to the Father.

Pastor Russ Peters and Charlie lead us into an atmosphere of Worship and Praise to our Lord. He also sang a few songs he had written about different times in his life where God spoke to him and lead him to a place of fully trusting in Him.

Some beautiful mornings






Great picnics

And fun at the Water Slide

God bless and we hope to see you next year August 15 to the 19, 2018
