Worshiping in God’s Creation

Fall foliage

On Sunday, October 5th our worship will take place in the sanctuary of God’s creation!  We will move our worship to Camp Salem, the Sprain Family’s camp outside of Black River Falls.  The entire church community is invited. We’ll have bus transportation available and maps to the camp for those who prefer to drive out.

A gathering time will be held from 10-11am, with hot coffee and delicious pastries being served. Worship will be held at 11am. A casual grilled picnic lunch will be served following worship. Games and hiking the camp will allow folks a chance to experience God’s beautiful creation more fully.

Reservations are needed by September 28th – please call the church office at 608-784-4248.

Our group of middle school students and leaders had an awesome time at Surf City camp in Mears, Michigan on August 3-9! Surf City is a week-long Christian camp experience put on by the Pittsburgh Kids Network for students entering grades 6-9. Twelve students and four adult leaders made up our 2014 team, one of our largest groups ever. The team enjoyed tubing, dancing in worship, crazy group challenges, funny skits, Capture the Flag in the sand dunes, and riding the SS Badger ferry across Lake Michigan! Most importantly, our students were able to focus several hours each day on learning about Jesus and growing in their relationship with Him. We do this trip every summer so make sure to sign up for Surf City 2015!
