Scripture of the Day

10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 14 And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

--2 Cor. 9:10-15

Sign Up for Family Camp Now!

Ever thought about going to summer family camp? Rather than sending each of your kids to Bible Camp AND squeeze in a family vacation this summer, why not do both at once and attend “Family Camp”?  It’s cost-effective, life-changing, and incredibly fun.  Your kids will never have a vacation they love so much, and you will be part of it!

Pastor T is urging you to consider that possibility this summer. Pastor T and Cathy are going to be the family camp speakers at Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp July 29 - August 3. Join them for a week of fun and sun. You can find out more information at: http://www.okoboji.org/familycamp. If you need help with the cost please contact Pastor Twito.

More answers to frequently asked questions on family camp can be found on our ALC News Page.

Is this heaven?  No, it’s Okoboji, just a small taste of heaven.
