Just figured I'd throw this in there to further exemplify the impact camp is making. I am the entirety of the youth group at my church, leaving me without the supportive structure many others have when it comes to faith. I exchanged contact information with people in my 'pod' (basically a combination of two smaller cabins into one regular sized group) at camp, providing me with supportive faith based friendships which I hope will last a lifetime.
Tim Stair
02:27:13
Andrew Rissler - Good to hear! And it was good to have you, your brother and Dad at our house and get to know you a little.

I’m glad for the opportunity to welcome Keller Park down the “slippery slope” of faithfulness :)
Phil Martens (he, him)
02:43:01
I was so glad to be a part of the zoom meeting on wed evening. My growing sense of the folks at Keller Park is one of dedication and above-all Energy. I feel we as CDC churches can learn a lot from KPC, and I welcome this congregation enthusiastically, and hope we can be a home and resource for them.
David Cramer (he/him)
02:43:35
