CLEARWATER FOREST CAMP REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN AT CLEARWATER
FOREST CAMP!


Join us for this summer’s theme: "THIS IS OUR PRAYER" Deepening our spiritual connection and realizing blessings through prayer. For some, prayer is simply speaking their thoughts and feelings to God. For others, it is clearing their minds and settling their hearts to make space for God. Some pray through music, art, or the movement of their body in dance or exercise. Some pray out loud, while others’ prayers are whispers of the soul. From Bible studies to creative worship, to community building games, to creative arts projects, This is Our Prayer will educate and empower your camper to find their own style of prayer and face the challenges as well as realize blessings in their everyday lives.

REMINDER:
The First Presbyterian Church of Willmar contributes half of the camp fee to each member of the church!


VBS Alert!

Did someone say Vacation Bible School?!

Yes, you read that correctly…VBS 2021 is going to happen! It won’t be in June as usual, but in August. August 1-4 to be exact! The CEYM Committee is so excited to share this news with you, so parents and VBS volunteers get these dates on your calendars right away, and make room for this fun and exciting event in the life of the church, and be watching for more information in the coming months as we prepare for “Knights of North Castle” where the King’s valiant Knights will be on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t going to be what they think it is. “Knight’s North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor” invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power! Together we will be exploring Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor – the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation – at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God. So Knights, prepare to take up the gauntlet and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God!

Family Cafe`-Lower Level

This class is a one-room-schoolhouse model of Sunday School where there is a time for story, activity, and prayer with a variety of age-appropriate options available. The younger and older students learn side-by-side and help each other along the way – a model of how the whole church shares its life together. Please note: we would prefer a familiar adult to stay in Sunday School with very young children. If parents would prefer to attend their own class, childcare will be available upon request.
