Pinecrest Summer Camps 2015
LET'S DO THIS...in God's Name
LET'S DO THIS THING! When you hear this, you know it's go time. When we decide to follow God, we've got things to do and surely some work to do on ourselves. Working in God's name means that everything we do becomes a prayer and that we work equally for our neighbors and ourselves. We put our heads down and do what needs to be done, no matter the circumstance, no matter the job, and we don't ask for glory. We'll figure out what this means and how we can work in the world for good - because it feels good to do good.
Our 2015 Summer Brochure is posted here. www.CampPinecrest.org Feel free to call about any of our camps. There's not enough room to tell you all the great stuff. (901.878.1247)
