Our summer interns are arriving this Sunday! They would love to get to know you and your family, so if you would like to host them for a meal this summer, please contact Emily.
This year we will be teaming up with six other groups to serve the Paragould/Jonesboro areas through a work camp that we’re calling Radius! We will split into work teams to do home projects for members of the community during the day, then we will have devotionals and fellowship in the evenings. We will stay on the campus of Crowley’s Ridge College.

Camp Barnabas (July 30th-Aug 5th)
Age: 13 (must be exiting 8th grade)-12th Grade Grads
Location: Purdy, MO
Cost: $295
DEADLINE: April 24th
This is a mission trip! We will be serving as missionaries at Camp Barnabas, a camp for individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses. This is not an easy mission trip. Most of us will be counselors, which means you’ll be paired with one camper who has special needs and you will be responsible for that  camper. From helping them through activities to helping them eat and bathe, you will have to be “on” at all times (excluding your time for breaks). It will require patience, energy, and positivity to get through the week as it is very demanding, both physically and emotionally. *I do not say this to scare you, but you need to be aware of what you’re signing up for!*
If you are under the age of 15, you will be a “barnstormer,” which means that you will not be paired with a camper. Instead you’ll be serving other needs of the camp staff, which may include things like serving food, tidying the camp, and building relationships. This role is less demanding, but will still require a positive attitude and a lot of patience!
