Church camp

Justin Kollmeyer's picture

One of my favorite events of ministry within the life of our church is our annual trek with kids and youth to summer church camp. We go to our Lutheran camp near Asheville, N.C., in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. It is appropriately named Lutheridge. Many church denominations have camps in that same area.

As you read the Citizen today, I am blessed to be in the middle of our week at Lutheridge right now. Having come here with campers for over 30 years, I can give you an almost exact account of our week, even though I’m writing this before we leave. Read More»
