Family Camp is one of the highlights of the year for the Bethany church family. This day-camp, held on the church property, is not only a time of great fun but of relationship-building and spiritual renewal. Attendees of all ages will enjoy the wide range of activities as we all fellowship together. Enjoy obstacle courses, yard games, volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, singing choruses around the campfire, eating great food, and fellowshipping with other believers. Family Camp is also a time of spiritual growth as we hear messages from guest preachers, watch object lessons, engage in “two family prayer”, and participate in Bible quizzing.
As the name implies, Family Camp provides a great time for both individual families and the church family to come together. Attendees of all ages interact together from the start of camp on Wednesday evening to its conclusion on Sunday afternoon. It’s a great opportunity to get to know other Christians.
Held at the beginning of each August, Family Camp is a refreshing and encouraging event for the whole family!
