Our youth summer camp was founded years ago. This annual and themed summer camp was created to serve the youth during the summer months. This program gives them the opportunity to be more productive learning about the word of God while making new friends. This camp is also a safe haven from the outside community creating productivity with their daily life structure.
This program started six years ago, when the need started to arise in our church community to help keep food on the table during the month. Many of our neighbors and community members are faced with poverty struggling from day to day and need help with making it. So, we prepared food bags for them to take home and help to keep something in refrigerator or in the cupboard for two to three days at the toughest time of the month.
