    Encountering the Power of God God is in the habit of encountering His people on mountains. Sharing promises with Moses (Exodus 33:18-23), revealing His incomparable power with Elijah (1 Kings 18:41-46), making disciples (Luke 6:12-16), and teaching them to obey everything He has commanded (Matthew 6; Matthew 28:16-20). God still moves on mountains. God moves; […]

  • Preparing for Winter 2017

      Winter camp is just around the corner and we are feverishly preparing for campers to arrive. We are working together to execute this year’s winter theme: “That’s It!” Taken from Mark 12:29-31, “That’s It” will walk students through the greatest commandment.  When a scribe asked Jesus “Which commandment is the most important of all?” […]
