A message from Hume Lake High School Ponderosa Summer Camp:
The Gospel isn't merely one ingredient in our programing mix. It's the reason for everything we do! The theme is a practical theme between the entertaining aspects of camp and our presentation of the Gospel. We leverage it as a background to Biblical truth.
The high-energy, innovative games at Hume Lake give give campers an outlet for their energy and counselors a change to encourage team building. Hume nurtures the attitude of worship from sunrise to sunset with indoor, outdoor, corporate and devotional worship. Hume Lake has an arsenal of activities for the students to participate in during free time.
Hume Lake is a place of great natural beauty, with warm summer days, cool nights, an amazing lake and wilderness surroundings. God makes cool stuff!
Junior High - The Junior High group (entering 7th - 8th grade) will be going somewhere new for camp this summer. We will be attending Mount Hermon July 21-27, 2019, located at 37 Conference Dr, Mount Hermon, CA. The cost is $625 per camper.
Financial Assistance is available through Mount Hermon (camper-ship applications are available through the website) and through CCC Deacons. Please contact Rodney () if you would like a Deacon Scholarship application).
The Ponderosa Camp is more than a mountain top experience! It's a one-week camp experience full of laughter, play, commumity and worship a students experience life to the fullest. In one week at Ponderosa students can skate, surf, play laser tag. make new friends, swim, ride BMX bikes and experience our zip line or leap of faith. Most importantly, in one week at Ponderosa students will encounter the God who knows them, who loves them and who wants to change their lives for eternity.

Mexico Mission Trip
Dates: April 22nd-28th, 2019
Time: We leave the church at 4:00am!
Cost: We will fund-raise for this trip. Our God is amazing and will provid hugely for this trip! The cost per person is $600 per person.
Join us as we partner with Amor Ministries to build a house for a family in need.
Contact Rodney Owens, our Interim Youth Director, if you want to go on this trip or if you want to support those who are going!
Purpose: The Great Commission in Matthew 28 tells us that we are to go and make disciples in all nations. This trip gives us the opportunity to live out that verse by going to a different country to provide hope. We want to be ambassadors for Christ, and we see that when Christ was doing ministry he provided for peoples’ physical needs while providing for their greater need - Hope and forgiveness of sins. We will be doing the same on our one week trip to Mexico. We will be teaming up with Amor ministries to build a house for a family in need while sharing the hope of the Gospel. Also, this year we will be putting on a VBS for the kids in Mexico. Please keep our team in prayer. We have worked well as a team, and my prayer is that our participation and planning that we have worked towards thus far would continue into Mexico and that we would come back with our hearts softened.
