And Summer Will Find Us...

Bay Lake Yes, summer will come. And with it, the promise of a weekend on an island up north. Run away with us to Bay Lake. It's like going to bible camp, minus the counselors, plus every age. With better food than you remember (because, well, this is actually better food). Humble Walk will converge at Bay Lake Friday, June 29-Sunday, July 1. Reserve your room or tent sight. jodihouge@gmail.com

National Youth Gathering We are sending our entire senior high to New Orleans, July 18-22. PLUS two adults. Brylle, Val, Slade and Michelle are going to take New Orleans by storm. Our own Rachel Kurtz will be there to lead music. We have already paid for registration costs. We still need to fund hotels, transportation and meals. I am certain that soon you will hear of ways that you can support this trip. http://www.elca.org/ELCA/Youth-Gathering.aspx
