July 29 – August 5


Camp Kalos:

          What a great week of camp with some outstanding campers! So many laughs, fun activities, hilarious skits but most importantly there was much time devoted to spiritual growth through the study of God’s word. A big “thank you” to all our camp staff for investing in the spiritual well being of our campers.

We want to congratulate our Campers of the Year for 2015: Jr. Girls – Erica Moore, Avery Bennett; Jr. Boy – Shane Winkler; Sr. Girl – Ally Bateman; Sr. Boy – Amos Tan. Great job, campers!!

We also want to congratulate the following campers for the decision to follow Christ and put Him on in baptism last week: Brock Bennett, Erica Moore, Bennett Walden and Michaela Gerber. Congratulations to all of these and their families. We are proud of you! Next week there will be more highlights from camp. Stay tuned!
