We asked the Lord and you to LIGHT UP our Chapel.
We needed $15,000 to move from tired to FRESH.
As of today – 36 amazing folks invested $33,890! (That means we can give more scholarships to those in need!)
And, as you can see from the sneak peak picture – the whole system has been installed…just in time for Winter Camp.
Please join us in praying our students learn and experience the power of God’s ‘reckless’ love from Jesus’ story of a father and two sons in Luke 15. 👍
Grateful to be creating great, (well lit) mountain-top experiences with an eternal impact.
Taking Camp Down the Mountain to the Community
The camp speaker, Josh Best sparked a lot of conversation about being part of a church family and community. We saw his message was supported by the way the staff treated the campers and the leaders.
Within a week of our return, 6 of the youth volunteered to help with our AWANA program (we were desperate for help), 2 have become part of the Sunday worship team, 3 have volunteered to teach Sunday school.
Also, driven by the youth, we have started daily devotions with the YouVersion app as a whole group.
As you can see – they were convicted to become active parts of the body, their church family as a result of camp.
My heart is pretty full right now.

We had a kid staying in our cabin who came up without a group or leader. When the speaker gave an invitation, he went forward and prayed to receive Christ. The cool thing is that my high school counselor got to pray with him and help him make his decision to receive Christ as his Savior. He was super excited to be part of that experience!

I’ll See Him in Heaven
This is a story of a student, who in all likelihood, I will never see or talk to again. It was Saturday night. Lots of kids were coming forward to accept Christ. It was exciting.
I was sitting in the front row and I saw a young man who was alone and crying. Unfortunately, all the leaders were with other kids. I walked over to him. He quickly opened up and told me about his brothers who were in and out of jail and about how he was scared for them and also scared that he might end up like that.
I asked him if he knew Jesus as his Savior. He said no.
I’d never led someone to Christ and was very nervous so I prayed, “God help me.” I was able to pray with this young boy and he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. God is good! I pray for this boy at least once a week and I know that God has great plans for him – I am excited to see him in Heaven one day.

From Camp to Baptisms
Olivia and Sunshine attended Angeles Crest summer camp. We had talked about baptism and doing baptism classes at church. At camp the kids are at church 24/7. They are on a God-High (worship, speaker, lots of Christians, no technology to distract them). So it’s a great opportunity to talk about giving your life to God and putting Him first in your life. Olivia and Sunshine were both baptized after camp. Praise the Lord!

Christmas lights are one of the most significant aspects of the Christmas season.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Light breaks the darkness and impacts our senses. It’s true at camp, as well.
Our problem: The main chapel at Angeles Crest was built in the 1960s and the lighting system is old, tired and outdated. In order to provide relevant, top-level programs for our children and youth, we need to renovate the indoor lighting system.
The solution: Provide new, up-to-date lighting technology that will create imaginative youth and children programs which will result in an eternal impact on campers.
Our Goal? Our goal is to raise $15,000 to renovate and install a first-class lighting system in the main chapel to be available for our 2019 Winter Camps.
Why? The reason is to bring a life-changing, eternal impact into the lives of children and youth. That’s it – that’s our mission!
Will you please join us in giving a financial donation toward the NEW CHAPEL LIGHTING SYSTEM?
You can help bring the “light of Jesus” into the lives of our campers for years to come.
