Faith is more “caught” than “taught”, so catch some fun this summer.
Summer camps at a great way to explore, grow, and “catch” faith. We’re creating a summer of fun and faith for all ages. Below you’ll find just the beginning of what we’re planning. Save the dates and keep checking back for more opportunities and happenings. Here’s what’s ahead!
Food Truck Party
5:30 pm Dinner · 6:00-7:30 pm Rotations
Food Truck Party is the biggest neighborhood party around! Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:11; “Give us this day our daily bread.” These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it’s by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met.
Each night we will gather for dinner, then kids along with their parent(s) or grandparent(s), will explore Bible stories through music, crafts, science, and games! Invite your friends to join in the Food Truck Party at Grace.
Registrations by June 1st – $25/child 3 yrs and older

July 10th – July 13th* – High School Camp

For four great days during the summer, teens have the chance to get away from real life, hang out with people from all across the Midwest, deepen friendships, and talk about God. Everyday speakers come to share inspiring and challenging stories about real life, God, and where the two intertwine. The days are packed with fun surprises of all kinds. From the music, the movies, the games, the speakers, and club – all with laughter to tears – Summer Festival Camp really has something for everybody.
*Confirmation Camp – youth who are planning on being Confirmed in Oct. 2022 will attend the High School camp week at a reduced cost of $135.
