  • Church Family Camp

    Church family camp is a unique opportunity for the entire family to share in fellowship with other members of our church family. This yearly event began for our congregation in the summer of 1998 at the La Foret Retreat and Conference Center located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Daily excursions and fellowship opportunities fill this fun-packed week. Family camp is held annually in various locations within the United States. Recent trips have included La Foret in Colorado (2012) and Craigville Retreat Center in Cape Cod, Massachusetts (2013). 2014 Marks a return to a favorite destination: Blowing Rock Conference Center in North Carolina. A great activity for all ages.
