A Note from Our Pastor


Thanks for joining us for this year’s Men’s Campout! This year’s event promises to be life-changing as we go deeper into God’s Word, grow in relationship with each other and learn from one another.


The bible says in Proverbs 27:17 that “as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” This verse highligh­ts the power of what happens when men come together; they sharpen one another. I encourage you to come with this perspective in mind… not only will you be sharpened, but as iron, you also will help to sharpen the life of another.


So come with an open heart, a willingness to participate and be ready to have fun along the way.


Enclosed with this letter are some detailed instructions and information relating to our campout. Please take time to review them. I can’t want to see all that God has in store for you and I look forward to connecting with you.


With Love,

Pastor Jose Vasquez
