A House Fit for an Architect

“A church is basically a house—a home for the body of Christ,” says Bill Argus. “Similarly, a house of committed Christians is something like a church.”

Servant Camp

This year’s Servant camp, held August 8-13, was the hottest and wettest ever, according to longtime camp director Carmen Lee. Campers endured four major rainstorms that dumped seven inches of rain on them, along with two days in the 90s and one where the thermometer hit triple digits.

    Servant Camp 2010 will not only be remembered for the heat, rain and lightening. It will be remembered for the friendships made with others and with God. It was a very peaceful week with counselors helping kids, kids helping counselors and kids helping kids with their projects, with their fears and with their growth in a relationship with their Lord.
