AMPED Day Camp: For the first time ever, this summer, we are offering 2 as in T-W-O day camps, June 18-22 and June 25-29! The children’s ministry is pushing forward with MVCC's mission to reach Frederick for Christ, so we have expanded this ministry to include over 500 children! We are asking each family to choose a week and to consider serving in some capacity so that the Gospel can be shared with all of them. We not only need help during both weeks of day camp in the mornings, but there is prep to do, set-up, Friday night picnics, and lots of cleaning up to do as well. If you have a heart to reach the next generation and/or our neighbors, please contact Laura D’Andrea at laura.dandrea@mvccfrederick.com and let her know.

Camper registration opens Saturday, April 21st.
