Pastor Keith Peck: “Daniel: Engaging a Polarized, Hostile Culture as Salt, Light & the Aroma of Christ”
About the Topic: In our current cultural moment, outrage has become more expected than surprising, more normative than odd, more encouraged than discouraged, more rewarded than rejected. Outrage over election “fraud”, COVID politicized government “overreach”, mask & vaccine mandates, “social justice”, LGBQT legislation. We no longer discuss. We rage, cancel and shame…too often mean-spirited and quick-triggered. In this culture of outrage, Bono, the front man for the rock band U2 warned, “We must be careful in our efforts to confront the monster not to ourselves become the monster.” So how do we engage this culture with a different spirit, the Spirit of Christ, and become the kingdom-influencers and culture-shapers we are called to be? Daniel illustrates God’s answer to that question.

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.
