Camp Sunday Who Do You Want To See?

Ever faced situations that surpasses what you have to offer? Ever felt that someone or some situation has spent all your resources and now you don’t know what to do? If so, perhaps you want to go to a wedding, not any wedding but one in Cana!

This Sunday we will be welcoming a special guest speaker: Mark Kotchapaw. Mark and his wife served in pastoral ministry for 38 years. 7 of those years were spent in Jakarta Indonesia at an international church. That experience was life shaping in developing a deeper appreciation for the global work that God is doing. They currently are living north of Kingston where Mark is working at Iawah part time, doing leadership coaching and marriage counselling. As someone who grew up at Iawah and has been involved in the camp for his whole lifetime, Mark strongly believes in the importance of a strong partnership between the local church and camp ministry. The two don't compete but complete a well rounded discipleship focus for the local church and camp ministry. We are stronger together!

Camp Sunday We’re looking forward to hosting another Camp Sunday this year on Sunday, March 3!  Join us alongside various camps from this area as we learn about their programs as well as the importance of camp.  Be sure to stay after the service and visit the various camp reps to get more info.

The nursery will be staffed and KIDZone will be happening
