FUTURE EVENTS


Family Camp offers the right blend of time away with family and friends, biblical teaching, and recreation.

We are privileged to have the Steers lead our morning sessions for the 25th Autumn Ridge Family Camp.  John, Gretchen, and John’s brothers, Andrew and Simon Steer, will provide biblical teaching to help us “Steer Straight” this summer.

Housing options range from hotel rooms to basic camp sites. The food is great, and you can go a full week with all your meals prepared for you (and not do any dishes).

There are so many options for recreation; the challenge is figuring out what to do each day.

Take Heart: Christian Courage in the Age of Unbelief

~by Matt Chandler

This book about Christian courage is needed like never before. Believers must not be thwarted by fear, but must depend on God with confidence, that Christ will build his church.

If You Only Knew: My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story of Becoming Free

~by Jamie Ivey

The author’s journey to freedom began by not running from trouble, but trusting Jesus to make something beautiful of it. She stepped out of shame and insecurity into gospel freedom.
