2019 Summer Theme

In Psalms and elsewhere, God is described as a Rock and a Refuge. Campers this summer will explore concrete, physical aspects of nature - rocks - to ground spiritual discussions about a present – yet invisible – God. Inspired by the 2019 LCMS National Youth Gathering: "Real. Present. God." Life Rock looks at the reality of this almighty, invisible God in our lives, and compares the different types of prayer we can use when communicating with Him.
