Operation Belle Glade



We've shifted our summer camp "philosophy" for kids. Instead of going to a camp where its all about them having fun, we are taking them on a local missions trip where they will be serving the community of Belle Glade. Belle Glade is a needy city that is about an hour away. The kids will be serving during the day and then having a service with their parents that evening followed by a sleepover.

I am excited about this shift. I believe it will help our kids grow spiritually. Anytime you get kids out of their comfort zone and serving others, it's a win. Here is a promo video we made for parents.
