Special Event | Family Camp at Tri-State
Tragedy & Triumph
The Bible is filled with stories of flawed people who lived for God. Though they made repeated mistakes, their lives were defined by their enduring faith in God's grace. This is especially true in the book of Genesis, the story of how God built a nation through a family. In the stories of the Jewish patriarchs, we see God's grace overcoming personal foibles, family conflicts, and moral failures. We resonate with these stories because these individuals were just like us. We seek to follow God, but too often we are beaten by besetting sins.
Join us this year for Family Camp as we examine the stories of the people in Genesis and learn how the grace of God triumphs in tragedy. In addition to the main teaching sessions, we will provide teaching on biblical principles for how to overcome depression in the Christian life. Make your plans to be with us this summer for refreshing fellowship and helpful biblical teaching.
