Prayer Partners for Guatemala Travelers

Ben Nelson, CYF Specialist at Bethlehem, is leading the students and families with LPGM to Guatemala. We would love to match a prayer partner with each traveler.

What does a prayer partner do? Pray daily for their traveler, write two letters in advance of the trip to be handed out in Guatemala, and attend the Prayer Partner Reveal Party on Wednesday, July 20 from 6:30-7:30 pm. At the reveal party, you will meet your prayer partner or traveler, share your photos and stories, and have an ice cream float. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP TO BE A PRAYER PARTNER.

Please have your 2 letters to Ben Nelson by Thursday, June 16.

Green Lake Bible Camp

Camp is a pivotal part of a kid’s faith as they learn about Jesus through song, silliness, and campy stuff.

If you are wanting to send your kiddo to camp, please consider Green Lake Bible Camp. They have different options and different weeks to attend.
