2017 Retreat Theme: "SEND: Service Evangelize Nations Disciple"
Theme Verse: “Then said Jesus to them again, ‘Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.’ ” John 20:21 KJV
Camp T-Shirt: T-Shirts can be ordered through the camp website (here).
Change is usually difficult. There are many steps that go into it: trial and error phase, evaluation, feedback from those involved, weighing the benefits, etc. Well, that is where we are. Above is the link for the t-shirt orders. As of now, nothing has been changed in the cost of the shirts because the above steps will have to be completed before we can determine if it is beneficial to us. Because we do not order as many shirts as the camp orders throughout the year, the camp cannot just absorb the difference in the cost so we are evaluating the benefit of going through them. At this point we will be receiving a check back from the camp of any profits above the actual cost of camp. This money will be going toward our project and then after looking at the numbers we may be able to reduce the cost of the shirt next year. Please bear with us during this possible transition.
