To secure your space, we need a $60.00 non-refundable deposit  by February 1st. The church will contribute $50.00 toward each child’s registration fee which will reduce the total cost from $289.00 to $239.00. Your $60.00 deposit will be applied to the cost as well.  We are looking forward to a great time at camp.  If you have questions, please contact Dewana Howard, interim Children’s Minister.

Any adults wanting to help be a host home, driver, or be a small group leader please let Brandon know as soon as possible. There is one thing that everyone can help with and that is pray. Pray that God would move in the hearts of the students and adults involved in DNOW across the county.
