“May the God who gives hope fill you with great joy. May you have perfect peace as you trust in him. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill you with hope.” Romans 15:13
This summer we will gather together as a community in fellowship and faith. We’ll share stories of Jesus and how we are to live for God. Together, we’ll see that we each have gifts to share. We’ll learn about the commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself” and what we can do to live in peace, working to build each other up in His name.
All are invited to join in this camp community to learn, share and prepare for where the Spirit will lead each of us. Got Spirit? Share it at the Point –and bring a friend, too!
