June 2016
This Summer @ Campion
Before you pack your shorts and head for either a tropical vacation or to the mountains, tuck your home church in your prayer pocket. By the time all of us come back to settle in for the new school year, Campion Church will have made two significant decisions that are a part of growing: a pastor for discipleship and youth and the question of where and how big our building addition will be.

Pastor for Discipleship and Youth
A culmination of a church-wide survey and conversations with the elders, current pastoral team,
conference, church board, and search committee has resulted in the decision to add a pastor focused on discipleship and youth (pre-adult ages including elementary). As I type, our search committee has their boots on the ground engaging in that task. Soon we hope to share their recommendation.

Building Addition
We began the conversation just over a year ago on the need to enlarge are current venue for class and meeting rooms, storage, offices, and fellowship. The Major Improvement Committee (MIC) has diligently been discussing and reviewing ideas. Just this spring many of us were able to participate in town hall sessions that were helpful in answering questions, sharing comments, and discussing ideas. The  collective result has been two general suggestions for where the building addition should be (off the south side of the church-- currently a back parking area-- or out the east side, continuing where the offices are) and several thoughts on how big it should be (of course this directly impacts the cost).

On June 13, a business meeting has been called to vote those two questions along with 7 suggested areas of improvement* to our current church building. Believing the line "arise and build" (1 Chron. 22:19) is for Campion, indications of God's directing and providing have already began.

*Improvements
1. New lighting in hallway and foyer area.
2. Exterior yellow windows be replaced.
3. Exterior doors on foyer replaced.
4. New carpet/flooring in foyer and hallway.
5. Renovate fellowship hall & kitchen.
6. New boiler.
7. New sanctuary lighting.

You have probably noticed that we have photographers taking pictures of church events, and the church services are also live-streamed. Which means your picture could appear on-line, or on the web site, or in the Campion Connections, or with other media. Names are not usually used with the pictures unless it accompanies a specific story, and names are never used with children unless you specifically give permission. If you have any questions please talk to Ardis Stenbakken at ardisathome@comcast.net.

Wildfire Ends with Promise of Heaven
by Kyle Rushold

This special night of the last evening of Campion Academy's student week of prayer started off powerfully. Six students decided to give their life to Jesus by being either baptized for the first time or recommitting their life by getting re-baptized. Junior Cassie Carr then spoke a powerful message about heaven--a topic she's passionate about. She answered many questions such as "What will we look like in heaven?" and "Is there room for us all?"   More

All About People

 

 

Welcome to Campion Church
Campion welcomes Michelle and Sam Dennis 
They came to Colorado from Maryland because of their love of the Rocky Mountains and hiking, skiing, sightseeing, gardening, music, and travel. Besides that, Sam's mother is originally from Boulder and graduated from Campion Academy.

Sam is a CPA with O'Donnell and Dennis, CPA's in Longmont and Michelle graduated last year from the University of Southern California with a Master of Laws degree and a Certificate in Business Law. Prior to their move she worked in healthcare at Washington Adventist University.

Michelle's favorite text is "Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one's head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the LORD? ...to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter--when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?" (Isa. 58:5-7).

And Sam's favorite is Proverbs 3:5-7: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil."

The Dennis couple say they would like to be involved in the Campion Church in any way they can. We are glad they have joined us!
                                                                                  Interview by Ardis Stenbakken

Welcome to Campion
Rebecca Cline lives in Thornton but has chosen to join us at Campion, perhaps partly because her daughter Erin Johnson is a member here. Rebecca is a registered nurse who is a care coordinator and works with seniors after they've been in the hospital.
 
She is married to Doyle Cline, and besides Erin, she has a daughter, Carrie, who was just married. She has four stepchildren and five grandchildren, three of whom she brings to church with her. And when she has time she loves to quilt and to read.
 
Becky says her favorite Bible character is Peter. He loved Jesus, yet he had many flaws. Jesus saw past these flaws and loved Peter for who he was and the work he did. "I know I have many flaws but I know Jesus loves me and He continues to show me every day."
 
Although Becky has always been involved in the children's divisions of every church where she has been a member, she is not yet sure where she should be involved at Campion. She says, " I love this church. I feel that I am coming home. I am an alumnus of Campion Academy and part of the class of 1983." Born and raised a Seventh-day Adventist, Becky attended Brighton Adventist Academy and Campion Academy as well as Union College.
 
Interview by Ardis Stenbakken
Welcome the Rodriguez Family 
 
Campion welcomed the Rodriguez family many months ago and they have really become fully engaged! You have undoubtedly seen Alex on the platform singing with the praise team. With four children, both Alex and Stacey are involved in children's programs, and Chase is one of the members of Campion's own championship Bible Experience team.
 
Alex and Stacey Rodriguez moved to Colorado from the Indiana Conference where Alex was a pastor and Stacey a nurse in the ICU and Cardiac ICU units. Alex and Stacey met at Southern University in Chattanooga, Tennessee and were married in 2000. Rounding out the family are Chase (12), Celeste (9), Carissa (8) and Cayliana (3).
 
Alex was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in Miami, Atlanta, and Chattanooga. Stacey was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Following college, Alex worked as both a fireman and police officer before following his call to ministry.
 
Two years ago, Alex participated with other pastors in the Indiana Conference when the Voice of Prophecy (VOP) was holding a Revelation Speaks Peace series in Indianapolis. He had already been bitten by the evangelism bug, and enjoyed the opportunity to minister with the VOP team. Alex joined the VOP in early 2015 as the Associate Director of Evangelism and the worldwide Bible School which keeps Alex on the road a good deal of time.
 
Stacey now works as a pre-op and post-op nurse at Medical Center of the Rockies. Both Alex and Stacey are also very busy homeschooling their four wonderful children. Stacey enjoys gardening, canning, crafts, sewing, reading and scrap-booking--when there's time! Alex enjoys wood working, photography, and farming. The childrenk have their own farm-fresh egg business and are currently raising 52 laying hens that produce about 11 dozen eggs weekly. So, if you need any farm fresh eggs...you know who to see!
 
One of the big draws to Colorado was the chance to have wildlife right at their back door. Living in the foothills of Colorado's Rocky Mountains means that they have deer and elk grazing in their front yard, rabbits as frequent visitors, and even the occasional rattlesnake stops by. Thanks for joining the Campion church family!

Staying Connected
Bill Arrington Answers the Question
          How did you become an Adventist?

I was raised in the Baptist Church for most of my life.  My father is a Baptist deacon, and my maternal grandfather was a Baptist minister in the very church my dad belongs to now.  I learned of the Seventh-day Adventist Church when I married my wife Lynn who is a life-long Adventist.  When I first started going to the Adventist Church, I decided I would go every other Sabbath, so one weekend Sunday, one weekend Sabbath.  When I arrived at Sunday service, folks would ask "Where were you last week, because you missed a great sermon."  I would reply, " I was at my other program."  The following Sabbath, folks would again ask, "Where were you last week?  You missed a great program."  Once again I would reply "I was at my other program."  After several months of this, I decided I was simply missing too much, so started going to the Adventist Church exclusively.  I eventually joined the Adventist Church through Profession of Faith about seven years ago.

Mothers Honored with Beautiful Roses.


The Elders of Campion Church presented each lady a lovely red rose on Mother's Day.
Teresa Johansen Thanked With Quilt

A beautiful quilt was presented to Teresa by Jenny Sigler in honor of Secretary's Day .  The quilt top had been pieced by Teresa's late mother and given to the Campion Quilting Ministry.  The group decided it would be most appropriate to finish the quilt and give it as a gift to Teresa.
