On the Sunday following Valentine’s Day, First UMC will gather to worship and celebrate the love…the love we have for church camping, and especially, Camp Lakeside! Amber McMurray Stanley, Lakeside’s new program director, will be with us at both 8:55 and 11:00 to share some of the exciting things that are happening at Camp Lakeside, just in time for camping season to begin in June.
Dodge City First UMC has a great history of sending kids to camp! We do this by paying ½ of the cost for any child from our church to attend camp. This saves families hundreds of dollars, and makes sure that all children from our congregation have an opportunity to encounter Jesus at camp! Camp booklets are available from Melyssa White or Bryce Fuhrmann. Register before May 1st, and you receive an early bird discount, saving both you and your church.
If you would like to help send kids to camp, you can make a contribution and simply designate your gift for “camp funds.”
