Civic Holiday Weekend

The Civic Holiday Weekend programming runs Friday, July 31 at 7 pm through to Monday, August 3 at 10 am.

The program team goes all out to make Stayner Camp the place to be on the Civic Holiday weekend.  Laugh Again with Phil Callaway!  From Friday, July 31 at 7 pm through to Monday, August 3 at 10 am, Phil will help us chase the stresses of life away through the joy that can only be found in a growing relationship with our Saviour and time in the Word.

We interrupt Phil – just once! – for a Saturday night entertainment event with Bob Cates.  Unparalleled, Bob just does amazing things in front of our eyes.  He loves the Lord and uses his gifts to glorify Him.

All weekend, leading us in the praise and worship that raises the tabernacle roof is Dana Marie and her band.  It is going to be one unforgettable weekend.  Bring on the fireworks!

Kingdom Kids & Auntie Pam, Children's Ministry

Back for a 2nd year we welcome the Kingdom Kids Team. God is rising up a generation for Himself! Kingdom Kids give kids the chance to let the light of Jesus shine in them, while discovering the gifts and talents He has given them. Kingdom Kids is about giving Jesus the opportunity and stage to "show up" through these kids and He always does!
