WHY IS HOLLIS CROSSINGS UNIQUE?
50% of our campers each year are children who would otherwise not have a camp experience. Through generous scholarships from Atonement Lutheran, Kaw Prairie Community Church, Salem Lutheran, Trinity Lutheran and many individuals about 20-25 children will have a camp experience this year. If you would like to apply for a scholarship please contact the Hollis office. Past organizations that have benefited from the scholarship program are ReStart, Catholic Charities (International Refugee Program), LUMA, Metro Lutheran Ministries, and Rosedale Development Association.
WHAT IS THE BIBLE STUDY THEME FOR 2018
The Bible study theme for 2018 is THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” — Ephesians 2:8
This summer’s Bible study will reaffirm God’s love for each of us
regardless of our successes and failures. We can trust in God’s
promise of new life and walk in confidence in whatever we do.
When our hearts finally comprehend that we are saved by
grace through faith, not by what we do; everything changes
God’s grace changes everything!
