Informational Meeting —Sunday, July 9 at 12:30 PM in the sanctuary

High School Summer Camp, July 10-16. Jesus was someone who was known for fighting for justice, giving a voice to those that didn’t have one, and loving those who were difficult to love. This year our high school summer camp theme is “Love Thy Neighbor.” We want to put our students in environments where they have the opportunity to lean on the example of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit to love those who are rarely shown love. Our summer camp will be divided into two phases. First, we will be taking students for 3 days down to Cove Palisades where we will be tent camping, boating, hiking, and community building. For the 2nd phase we will head back to Vancouver where we will join a couple of other churches to do service projects and outreach in our city. Register now »
