Eagle Lake is a week long camp for kids ages 7-12 that takes place at our church. The well-trained counselors pursue discipleship with each camper in an extremely fun and energetic environment. Registration opens on January 1st. The cost is $200. Scholarships are available. Also, Eagle Lake is providing a $25 early-bird discount through the end of February. That discount can be added to the early-bird discount the church provides through the end of April! Visit eaglelakecamps.com/firstefree to register or find more info.
Due to severe peanut allergies in our congregation, we can absolutely have NO peanut products in our building. This applies to any day of the week and for any activity you may be attending in our building.
We have attendees with fragrance allergies. We have designated the first six rows of the left section of our sanctuary (as you look at the stage) for them. If you wear fragrances, we would appreciate you avoiding that area.
