CCM Crossings- Fall 2017

October 2017- November 2017

"CCM Crossings" is sent out to constituent congregations and supporters to keep you informed about happenings at Camp of the Cross Ministries.  We hope it is a helpful resource in support of our camp, together! 


Highlights:
•    Thank you!  Your response to our time of need with our summer expenses was overwhelming!  To date:  we have received $10,500 plus the Fensters $25,000 challenge! Please continue to remember us in your giving!  Thank you!

•    We had over 50 youth at our 7th-9th grade bash!  What a great weekend the youth had playing games and learning more about Jesus in the Bible studies!  Don’t miss the spring bash!

•    Thank you!  The first annual Blue Jeans Ball was a huge success!  Many thanks to everyone who attended; our sponsors and all who supported the event with food, etc.  We raised $8,000! Thank you!
