Dads/sons, grandpas/grandsons, uncles/nephews, and of course -- men with no boys. Bring your tent, RV, hammock or cot. We'll pitch camp in and around the Pavilion. Come enjoy outdoor cooking, a camp fire, singing and stories around the camp fire, s'mores, activities, and more. We'll enjoy Sabbath School, Church & Potluck with our church family. SUNDAY MORNING MOTHER'S DAY PANCAKE BREAKFAST -- The entire church is invited to enjoy pancakes in the Pavilion.
Please Note: The weather forecast is a bit sketchy for that weekend. Watch for late breaking information on the campout.
