Summer 2016


Builders For Christ 2016

Camp GraceRoberta, GA

Our 2016 Builders For Christ trip is at Camp Grace Roberta, GA.  Camp Grace is a camp for intercity kids who otherwise would not be able to go to camp.  Each child pays $10 to go to camp for a week while the rest of the expenses are paid for by donations.  They have a great week at camp while the love of God is shown to them and the gospel is presented.  They are partnered with a local church before and after camp so each child can be discipled.  We are going to do the build out of their new Worship Center!

We just returned, along with several other BFC team members, from the Big Build at Camp Grace where we worked on building decks around their new Dining Hall.  If you would like to see what is happening at Camp Grace please visit their website at www.thecampgrace.com.
