Children's Message



Dear God, when things are changing, please help me to always look for You.


“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1

“When Change is Hard”

Things are always changing around us, and sometimes that can be hard.  But we never have to worry because God is always ready to help us through the changes. 

Maybe your family has to move to a new town.  Or you are beginning a new grade at a new school.  Or maybe you are starting a new activity and don’t know anyone.  You might feel a little excited, nervous, and uncertain all at the same time!

Just remember that God knows where you are and how you are feeling.  He is always with you, and you can trust in the Lord.

Thought of the Month

God is always there for you!

Veggie Tales: God Knows Me

Thank you,

A Message from Kerry Steever, Placerville Camp Director>>>

Greetings from Placerville Camp!  

We are excited to send out this message to let you know that we will be opening up for summer programming! YAY!!

Obviously with COVID still in full swing, as of right now, there will be some changes from the norm and we hope that by the time summer reaches us, we can change our course of action.

First off, all campers and staff will be wearing masks while indoors, except while sleeping. Campers will receive a cloth mask once they arrive and disposable masks will also be available. Campers, however, will be encouraged to bring their own masks as well as hand sanitizer.

Second, we will be restricting the number of campers that can attend. Youth camps will have a limit of 30 campers so that we can keep a ratio of 1 counselor to 5 campers. This will allow safer sleeping arrangements in the cabins. Women’s Camp will also have a limit of 30 participants. Campers will also be doing most of their activities within their family groups which includes meals times.

Third, registration will be on-line only, so a camp brochure will not be mailed out. On-line registration will allow us to keep track of the numbers as registrations are made in real time. We can keep track of numbers better this way. This can be done at

On-line registration also allows us to notify campers as guidelines change where we might have the need to adjust our protocols.

We would appreciate your helping get the word out to your congregation. Please pass on the website so folks will know where to get their information.

More information will be coming as time goes on. With many prayers, maybe we can lift the limit on numbers as summer draws near. We look forward to seeing you at camp!

The Stained-Glass Window Restoration Fundraiser is Ongoing!!

The Stained Glass window Restoration is an ongoing Fundraiser.  Any donation will bring us closer to our $50,000 goal to restore our windows.

Thank You in advance
