“A time for those youth who are just starting out and need some hands on help to get started and for those who have the basics just to practice what they are already working on. Some instruments are available for them to use, also giving them an opportunity to try something new! See Pastor Ben for more information.”

Note from Pastor Ben

Dear Church,

On behalf of all of the students in our student ministry, we would like to thank you for the many donations and prayers that you have given. With your support, we are able to send young people to camp this year so they can hear the Gospel, and connect with Jesus in an exciting way! Please pray for those who are attending Super Summer this year. We leave Monday, July 9th and will return Friday, July 13th.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
