Yes, it is that time already. We will be attending camp at Stony Lake near the Silver Lake sand dunes, July 9-14. Camp is available for grades 3 through high school. Costs range from $395 to $440 for the high school group. However there is a $35 discount for registrations done before March 15. You can register on-line at www.elcalivingwater.com Be sure to register with Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Southeast Michigan Synod. Please let Pastor know when you register.
Also, we can always use sponsors to pay for a young person to be able to go to camp. Because of your generosity we usually have almost half of our youth attend on scholarship. Please contact pastor if you are interested in sponsoring a camper. Remember we also collect pop cans throughout the year (in the closet by the office) that provides for spending money while our youth are at camp.
ALL POST HIGH SCHOOL… members and their invited friends should plan to join
us once a month to study and have open discussion about Christianity, college, the latest
trends, and temptations common to us today. We meet the first Friday of every month at 6:30 pm at Panera Bread in Monroe. Please contact Gina if you have any questions and/or to RSVP. Email:
