Falls Creek, July 8-15th

The mystery is afoot this year at Fall’s Creek! Each year, the emphasis of Falls Creek youth camps follows a rotation of evangelism, character & nature of God, then spiritual disciplines. This year our focus is evangelism. Every aspect of camp unpacks the theme as we seek to reach the lost and equip the saints. Cost is $100 per student. The parent meeting will be on June 23rd at 5:00 pm in Fellowship Hall. For more information please contact Andrew Worley, Youth Minister.
