The theme for camp this summer is “Unchained”. “Unchained” is based on Psalm 107:13-14 which says,“Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.” What would it look like to live a life unchained? How sweet would it be to be set free from our bondage, our sin, our shame? It is easy for us to become shackled to the things of this world, but let’s live a life UNCHAINED.

Mission Peoria

Mission Peoria is a week long mission trip for youth to serve the city of Peoria. The hope is to make an impact in inner city churches and organizations through various service projects. In addition to hands on service projects, teams put on Metro Kids (VBS on Steroids) in various neighborhoods throughout the city. The youth are in charge of the lessons, games, and activities and are given an opportunity to build relationships and evangelize to the neighborhood children. Each evening, there are revival nights to spiritually recharge the youth for the next day of serving. The week culminates with Backpack Peoria - a huge outreach event at Dream Center Peoria. Many youth groups from the area participate in Mission Peoria, so there is a good chance you will find someone from your school there.
