Tuesday – June 26 – Creation
Pick your own pizza toppings from the Lamppost garden and watch your pizza being made in Lamppost’s outdoor ovens.  Get to know your neighbors around the campfire as we sing all the songs you remember from summer camp and hear the stories of creation as the ancients heard them.  Feel the embrace of God’s creation as we celebrate our unique place in the story.

Wednesday – June 27 – Struggle
Dinner will feature Lamppost’s amazing pulled chicken along with a plethora of sides.  Then it’s field day as we try to overcome a series of challenges requiring us to work together within families, between strangers and across generations.  Around the campfire hear the stories of pain and healing our ancestors have carried with them across the generations.  Feel the embrace of our God who walks with us during times of struggle.

Thursday – June 28 – Renewal
Its cook-out night as the Lamppost crew lays out a smorgasbord of grilled meats, along with sides.   Climb on the farm wagon for an in depth tour of Lamppost Farm with Farmer Steve as he explains how our connected with God and with the land brings renewal to all of creation, including us.  Settle in around the fire as we tell the ancient stories of a God who refused to give up on his people and who calls us to new life.
