'Connect Events’ bring youth
to summer camps for a day

The first “Connect Events,” designed to help the youth of the Great Plains Conference connect with others, with God and with nature in our camps, have been scheduled for August.
Shane Hinderliter, conference youth ministry coordinator, said Camp Fontanelle has had a similar event for two years and Camp Comeca had its first gathering last year, but this is the first time for this many camps.
The day, Hinderliter said, will include worship, fellowship and fun camp activities. Opening and closing worship will be planned by the local district councils on youth ministries. All events begin at 10 a.m. and conclude at 5:30 p.m. Registration is $20 per person and includes all activities, lunch and dinner.
