This Week's Promise to Share

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side! I praise God for what he has promised; yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? I will fulfill my vows to you, O God, and will offer a sacrifice of thanks for your help. For you have rescued me from death; you have kept my feet from slipping. So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light.

Psalm 56:8-13, NLT

A Week of Camp in Alaska!

Our western Washington youth group safely returned from Camp Tukuskoya in Alaska this week! The group had great fun being a part of the camp life and experiencing the impact camp ministry has on campers.

During a rainy day that prevented the use of the rock climbing wall, the staff and kids got creative and used the beams inside to lift kids on to the rafters! (pictured right)

The group helped build a new floating dock, lead worship services, interact with camp staff and campers, and teach activities!
