A CASE FOR FAITH: Exploring the Tough Questions about Christianity and Reasons to Believe - taught by Dawn Jackson

Hume Lake Winter Camp, March 4th-6th

The Fuse has been going to Hume Lake Winter Camp for the past several years and has loved every year more than the last! Hume has an excellent reputation not only with local California youth groups, but with groups all over the world. The students we've brought to Hume Lake each year have come home noticeably different with an invigorated passion for Jesus, scripture, and community. We want nothing more for your student than for each of them to experience a deeper understanding and love for Jesus and we think that Hume Lake is an excellent tool to encourage this. 
 

Want to sign up your student for Hume Lake?
 

  • Dates of camp: March 4th-6th, 2016
  • Total cost of camp: $224 (transportation fees included)
  • Deposit Information: 
    • $75 deposit due to reserve spot
    • Your $75 deposit can be turned into the front desk at Vintage Faith Church, Monday-Thursday between 10 AM and 4 PM or you can turn it in directly to us on Sunday at the 5 PM gathering (the deposit is non-refundable).
  • To sign up your student or to get more information email vanessa@vintagechurch.org
