Exchanged: Summer Camp
“They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever” (Romans 1:25).
Summer camp is finally here! This year’s theme is Exchanged. Our culture is dominated by people who have denied God’s Word and have exchanged the truth for a lie. This camp is designed to reverse our exchange of the truth and cause us to see God as He truly is, as the Creator who is worthy of all worship. There will be encouraging and challenging teaching from God’s Word and music from special guest artist, The Ambassador, as well as the Activate Worship Band. In addition to powerful worship services, this weekend in the mountains will be a great opportunity to meet new friends and have fun on the lake. The cost is $165 per student, and you can sign up online, on the patio Sunday morning, or at any of our Activate service. You don’t want to miss out!
If you didn’t notice, we have a pretty crazy schedule with the Anaheim Crusade, Summer Camp, and Harvest America in Philadelphia! We know, you’re thinking, Cha-ching! We want everyone to be involved in all that the Lord is doing, and we don’t want money keep you back. If you are interested in raising money for Camp, please contact us to get involved with the several fundraising opportunities that are available. If you would like to support and sponsor students for Camp, we are having a Car Wash and French Toast Breakfast Fundraiser on Saturday, August 17, from 8:30 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. in the back parking lot of Harvest Riverside. If you have sold tickets, it is mandatory for you to come and help at the car wash and breakfast, so show up at 8:00am in the back parking lot!
