Dr. Michael Sprague: “How to talk about Jesus in a ‘Salty Way.”
About the Topic: Do you want to have natural conversations with your friends and family about your faith? It does not have to be so awkward. We will start by unpacking the book of Jonah and then travel to the life of Jesus and the early church. There will be times exploring the depths of Scripture and practical application and apologetics to become more confident and competent to talk about the true meaning of life with others. There will be much time to learn from each other as well.

Horsemanship Day Camp is a great opportunity for kids (ages 8+) attending our Summer R&R program to learn more about horses. Our Wranglers teach aspiring equestrians basic horse anatomy, the essentials of riding equipment, techniques for tacking and grooming a horse, walking and trotting instructions for beginners, and then they’ll all hit the trails to gain real-world experience! Daily devotionals throughout the experience will focus on the lessons we can learn from one of God’s most majestic creatures.
A five-day traditional summer camp program with age-specific programs for rising 2nd-8th graders, Camp Caleb brings military youth into an authentic personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to strengthen their own family and peer relationships, and to prepare them for standing for Jesus Christ as teenagers.
A six-day program for rising 9th graders through recent high school graduates, Allegheny Outback! challenges teens to develop their very own personal knowledge of God by modeling Christ in real-life situations with plenty of adventure along the way.
