Camp Firelight is coming!!!


W.W.W. We will have “Wild Wacky Wednesday’s again this summer!   Beginning June 12th, we will gather each Wednesday for a fun filled excursion to area places for playtime, devotions and exploring God’s world!  All rising 1st graders thru rising 6th graders are invited to join in the action! If your child is a rising Kindergartener or under school age and wants to participate they are welcome to come along BUT a parent or adult must accompany them (this is mainly due to car seat restrains and the young age of the child).  We will meet at the church parking lot to embark on our adventures!  Please watch your mail box for a parent letter and more details. Below is our schedule for each Wednesday in June…

June12:  9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.:  KID SENSES
