Christian Day Camp held in Neponset

NEPONSET — Wells Barren Grove, Neponset, recently hosted a youth Christian Day Camp (CDC) program called “God Outdoors.”

Church of Peace and State Road Church, both of Kewanee, organized the one-day event for area children. The kids enjoyed a day of devotion, crafts, games, music, a hayrack ride and some area history.

The vision was to conduct a vacation Bible school as a one day, Saturday event. A headquarters cabin and three devotion sites were identified on the 40-acre property. Pastor Andrew Christman, Pastor Dan Wright and Lay Leader Angela Kaptenia were the devotion leaders. The event enjoyed excellent weather and was considered a success by all.

A 2022 Christian Day Camp has been tentatively scheduled for June 11 and all children ages 6 to 12 are invited. If you want to be part of the planning or be a helper, contact Pastor Andrew at 309-854-3765.
