John Mohl Campership Fund Scholarships
Have you made camping plans for this summer? Consider signing up for a fun and faith-based summer program at Camp Wartburg in Waterloo, IL. At Camp Wartburg, children and families become immersed in God’s awesome creation where the traditional pursuits of sports and academics become secondary to the values of curiosity, tolerance of others, self-discovery and learning-by-doing. Worshiping under the stars before a campfire becomes an exciting, joyful experience. Learning new skills is a goal, but fun is the process. Campers may learn to shoot an arrow, canoe, swim, fish, play non-traditional games and so much more. Led by college-aged counselors who love the Lord and children, campers blossom under the supervision of positive role models, function in small groups and engage in discussions around Bible studies, values and respect for other people and nature. Camp Wartburg provides day and overnight camping opportunities for both youth and families. Please contact the church office at Our Lord's for more information about scholarships offered via the John Mohl Campership Fund for these wonderful, Christ-centered, summer camp opportunities!
Outdoor Worship in the Chapel in the Pines
As the spring weather moves in and we experience warmer temperatures and gentle breezes, outdoor worship in the Chapel in the Pines will be available once again. Our next outdoor worship opportunity takes place on Sunday, April 18th, at the 10:45am worship service. The "Peace in the Pines" summer outdoor worship experience will then commence on Thursday, June 10th, 2021, at 6:30pm and continue each Thursday evening throughout the warm summer months. Some bench seating is available but please feel free to bring along your favorite outdoor lawn chair, as you are able, to ensure your comfort. Continue to wear a mask covering your mouth and nose, social distance, keep your belongings with you, and we hope to see you there!
