It's Picnic Time
Pull out your shorts, sandals, sunglasses and flowered shirt. Winter is over (maybe). It's time for the First Presbyterian Church annual outdoor church service and picnic.
Here are the specifics:
SUNDAY, June 11 at Rotary Park (behind the VFW) Church service to begin at 10:30 AM. Deacons will be at the park by 8 AM, so come early for fellowship and to enjoy the beauty of the park and the river.
Food served at 11:30 AM. Traditional hamburgers, hot dogs, and the trimmings.
Optional things to bring? Canopies or shade tents, picnic blankets, lawn chairs, sun screen, hat, umbrella, personal comfort items.
The Mission Team is once again planning a mission trip to Newcomb NM on the Navajo reservation this year. There are two projects: the renovation of a small kitchen in a trailer home; and a new roof on another house. The committee has selected the last week of August (27-30) to do the work. We still need a couple more volunteers.
If you are interested in helping (whether for one day or for perhaps up to three days), please let us know.
The Mission Committee is an “equal opportunity organization” (both men and women are welcome, and willingness is more important than skill!).
Be With Kids, Show Them God
Sonlight Christian Camp is open for the 2017 season! We have started enrolling youth from grade 3 to graduating high school seniors in exciting backpacking trips and summer resident camps. We are especially jazzed about our fourth year of GrandCamp: young campers and their grandparents—no parents allowed!
There are also opportunities for young adults over age 18 to work on Sonlight’s summer staff: That’s 11 weeks of the most exhausting, most rewarding, and craziest work you may ever experience.
Sonlight savors the chance to be a part of God’s awesome work in the life of your children. So please visit www.sonlightcamp.org or call 970.264.4379 for more information. We would love to have the chance to host you and share in some of Christ’s journey with you and your youth.
Sonlight Christian Camp is a non-denominational, non-profit camp located in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, in the San Juan Mountains. We are accredited by the American Camp Association. The ministry has been serving youth and churches for 38 years, focusing on getting kids into the wilderness, helping them to discover who God wants them to be, and serving them really good food. (Oh, and offering the finest chocolate chip cookies this side of Mars.) Find out more at sonlightcamp.org.
