10th Annual Family Camp Recap!

September 11-16th, 2016, was our 10th Annual Family Camp. It was an incredible week. I feel like every year we say, "this year was the best camp yet"! But truly. This WAS the best, this year. We had a maxed out attendance of some 375ish people---a great group of families + singles from over twelve states + Canada! The common heart for Jesus and following Him was evidenced in so many ways throughout the week. It was such a beautiful five days of encouragement on so many levels. Enjoy this little recap in pictures!
