Coming up on July 11-14, we’ll be hosting this year’s Kids Camp, with the theme “Monumental”. As we approach this time, we’d ask that you join us in prayer over the event. Pastor Teresa, who is leading Kids Camp, has constructed a guide with different prayer topics for each day. We encourage you to pray along side us as we look forward to what God will do at Kids Camp!
