It’s not too early to start thinking about Summer! Here are some of the opportunities the teens have for the summer
June 10 – 14, 2013: Vacation Bible School for 3 year olds to finishing 6th grade. We need 7th through 12th volunteers
for the program. This is held at the church Monday thru Friday 9:00 am to 12:00 noon daily for a week.
June 15 – 22, 2013: West Virginia Mission Trip. This is a tent-camping, traveling experience where high school students
put on a Vacation Bible School for the kids in Circleville, WV. All 9th through 12th graders are highly encouraged to go.
June 30 – July 5, 2013: Junior Camp for finishing 3rd through finishing 6th grade kids. This is held at Camp Lambec in
Erie, PA where we live in cabins for a week of fun and learn all about Jesus with our friends. 11th and 12th graders are
counselors (with an adult supervisor in each cabin). 9th and 10th graders become “CIT’s” (Counselors-In-Training) where
skills are taught to teens in preparing them to become counselors.
June 30 – July 5, 2013: NIKES Camp for 7th and 8th grade. This camp will also be held in Camp Lambec up in Erie, PA, but
these teens will live in cabins “up on the hill” enjoying a separate camp experience at Cliffhaven Lodge where we will
learn acts of kindness and how to “pay it forward. ” We will have day trips during the week to area spots such as Waldameer,
Presque Isle, and other exciting adventures, TBD.
July 26 – August 4, 2013: Senior Mission Trip to Haiti. Our team will join the members of Victory Christian Center Mission
Team for a “Capstone” event that connects the people of Haiti with Americans using the Love of Christ while we
serve “the Least of These.”
