Camp Sunday

For many youth and adults, God is most present in the combination of community and nature. Camo at Pilgrim Point is truly sacred ground where young people and adult have an opportunity to play, worship, deepen their faith, make new friends, and deepen existing friendships Many pastors hear their call to ministry at youth camp. This Sunday we will celebrate the gift of youth-centered events and spaces like camp, regional and national youth events, and more. We will sing songs from camp, hear stories and reflections from our youth and adult chaperones. And then… we will ask for your support of finances and prayers for this important ministry.

We will be taking a NOISY offering – receiving your spare change in metal containers to make a joyful noise! Please bring all your quarters, nickels, and dimes (and bills and checks!) for this opportunity to show our support for these events.
Phil Kuehn will be leading us on guitar for a few songs, Lori Howe, Michael Kuehn, and Lance James will play spcial music for us. Come! Sing! Play! Celebrate! And make a joyful noise!

Pastor Leslie will be out of the office from Tuesday, June 19-Friday, June 22 for the Regional Youth Event in Grinell,Iowa. Rev. Joyce Rush will be on call for pastoral emergencies and can be reached at 218-838-8287.
