Family Camp is coming back to the GVR Summer Camp schedule » Nobody remembers for sure, but we think it hasn't been since the days of Ron Whitehead in the 1990s that we've hosted Family Camp at Glacier View Ranch. Family Camp is an amazing opportunity for families to bond spiritually and emotionally. It's an all-inclusive family vacation with amazing activities like rock climbing, ziplining, four-wheeling, horseback riding, canoeing and more!
There's morning worship and evening campfire programs that will bless young and old alike. This year's special guest speaker is Dick Duerksen from Maranatha International! You won't want to miss a single story that Dick shares.
Join us from July 7 through 14 for an affordable week of powerful family time. Click here for more details.

On the road » Diane and I had a wonderful Sabbath with the Grand Junction (Colo.) Church this past Sabbath. The church family there is very serious about serving their community and leading people to Christ. We appreciated each one who came out to support the Saturday evening Town Hall meeting there as well.
This coming weekend, I will be at Mt. Pisgah Academy in Candler, N.C., for Alumni Weekend. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my classmates and seeing and hearing how the Lord is leading in their lives.
Aren’t you grateful for the Sabbath?! I hope each one not only will be blessed, but also will have an opportunity to encourage someone else as we come together to worship our Savior.
