May Council Project - Camp Phillip

Did you know that, as a member congregation of Camp Phillip, St. John's members receive a 10% discount on all camp programs? Camp Phillip provides year-round relaxation in creation and renewal in Christ to WELS youth, adults, families, churches and schools throughout the year and is partially supported by St. John’s and other member congregations. The staff is focused on sharing Jesus, Christian friendships are made, and participants have fun at a camp known for its action-filled activities, inspirational Bible studies, exciting evening games, and hilarious campfires and sing-alongs. There is no membership fee, but congregations are asked to provide members an opportunity to support Camp Phillip in some way. This month’s Council Project will provide support to Camp Phillip for this purpose. Please use your green Above & Beyond envelope and make checks payable to St. John's. Thank-you for sharing your blessings!
