We are so excited! Our youth are heading to Glorieta, NM
for Centrifuge Youth Camp, June 17-21. Preparation was
quite the journey this year. Actually, it all started in
June of 2020 when our World Changers camp was canceled
due to COVID-19. Despite the disappointment, we
persevered and signed up for Centrifuge in Prescott, AZ
and we were super excited. We began to fill spots and
honestly to my surprise we quickly had 27 teens and
leaders scheduled to attend by March 2021. In April, the
unthinkable phone call came. Our location in Prescott
for camp had canceled. As I hung up the phone, God
reminded me of Romans 8:28, He said, “Remember, Holly, I
work all things together for good to those that love God
and are called according to His purpose.”
With that under my belt, I began to look for other
locations and we were told that we could attend
Centrifuge in Glorieta, NM! In spite of a scare that we
might have to go to plan C, we are heading to New Mexico
Thursday, June 17 at 3:00 am! Please pray for travel
safety and safety during camp. Most of all pray for
great spiritual growth for our teens and leaders as we
participate in what God has planned for us.

We have a new way for our members to give to our church.
At the request of a member, we've opened a non-profit
brokerage account so that members can give stocks or
other securities to the church. There are
incredible tax advantages for those who want to do so.
Contact the church office if you want to know how to
give. (Like all gifts, it is completely anonymous
except that our clerk will give you a donation receipt.
You will get a full tax deduction for the value of the
security on the day you gave, and you pay no capital

no roped-off pews) by
this August. Read this newsletter for full details
