“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”   Matthew 11:28

 

2017 Programs

This summer we will gather together as a community in fellowship and faith.  We’ll share stories of Jesus and how we are called to work and to rest.  Together, we’ll practice taking a break from the distractions in our daily lives – technology, routines, judgment of self and others, fear, selfishness –  and learn how we can express joy, thanksgiving and gratitude.      

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!
