Teen Camp

Do the words teenager and puberty strike fear in your heart? Us too! Nevertheless, we know these years are a perfect age for God to shape hearts, minds, and lives. We're making the most of every moment this summer with the guys and girls that are the Oak Tree Teen Family. We're most excited about our first ever SUMMER CAMP.  In June, we're headed to Camp Lee in Anniston for 3 days. From sun up to the wee hours, we'll be connecting with God and each other as we build relationships through His word, trust and play. This is the first camp experience for our kids. We could use your help readying them for camp. How can God provide through you, your family or small group? Click the link to see our packing list below. Thanks for making us HAPPY CAMPERS
