Family Camp 2011!

Join us for Family Camp, August 8-12, 5:30-7:45!

What exactly is Family Camp? For five evenings, we will eat together; serve children through lessons, music, and activities (a “VBS” format); and grow in relationship to God and one another.

Where and when? New Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1552 Kempsville Rd, in Virginia Beach. Dinner is served at 5:30pm each night but you can arrive early too.

Is Family Camp just another name for Vacation Bible School? Children will have all the excitement of a VBS. Unlike a traditional VBS, there is a stronger emphasis on the church-wide community, eating together (a biblical priority!), time together as parents/adults, and because it is in the evening there is a greater role for dads to play.

Who should come? Everyone, with or without children. For children, registration forms are available in the church foyer or you can contact the church office at 757-467-5945 to RSVP.

What are the ages for children? Rising K-6 have their own classes. Parents can accompany younger children so they can be part also. Teens serve in drama, music, games, crafts, and even teaching, but it’s important to sign up and secure a spot.

What if my child has special needs? Let us know on the registration form if there are dietary restrictions or special needs. Help us know how to best serve you and bless your family!

What are the seminars for adults this year? At 6:15 there will be discussion-oriented talks for all the adults who attend and are available. Here’s the list:

Monday: Stories of God’s Grace, Part One (New Covenant Members)
Tuesday: Rediscovering the Gospel (Nigel Anderson, Crisis Pregnancy Center)
Wednesday: Stories of God’s Grace, Part Two (New Covenant Members)
Thursday: God’s Design for Our Relationships (Wally Sherbon, New Life Presbyterian)
Friday: Where Do I Fit? (Pastor Jeff Elliott)

We hope to see you at Family Camp! Bring a friend!

And remember... we cook for you!
