where will you serve this summer?

Before long, summer will be upon us and we will be in full swing in our summer camp programs. At Arrowhead we have many opportunities to serve and minister together. There are several key roles that are often a challenge to fill, and perhaps this summer it is your calling to come and share your gifts and talents in one of those areas!

One particular area that we would like to fill this year is the position of program co-ordinator. We are looking for a Bible School student who might be interested in coming and serving for the summer in this leadership capacity. If you know someone, or if you yourself might be interested please drop us a line.

We're looking forward to an amazing summer, it's always exciting to see what the Lord is going to do with those who are willing to follow Him wherever He will lead!

Summer Materials Project 2013

With all of this snow blowing around it's hard to image that ANBC's summer camps will be in full swing in just a few short months! We, and the advisory team have already begun to plan the summer programs and build our summer curriculum. And, with this we could certainly use your help!

At Arrowhead, it is our goal to have good materials that are complementary to the message brought by our guest speakers. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is our primary message, and we wish to see it presented clearly and a way that will resonate with our campers. We have selected three pieces of material for this summer that we would like to add to our program for our junior camps and for our volunteer training program. Please take the time to look at what we've selected and consider partnering with us in acquiring these materials.

We are prayerfully presenting five projects, and are seeking five churches to partner with us in raising funds to acquire these valuable materials for our summer camp programs. If you, or your fellowship, feel led to do so, please drop us a line.

Your Child's Profession of Faith by Dennis Gundersen

This is the book that has been selected for our volunteer training this year. It is often overlooked that our volunteers come from abroad and our team each week is often comprised of individuals from far and wide. There is a great importance, in our role as teachers and disciplers, to be on the same page, and to be connected with NCEM's principle's and practices. This highlights the necessity for good volunteer training, and this book will be an excellent companion to our training this year.

Project 1 • 50 copies • estimated cost $350
Project 2 • 50 copies • estimated cost $350

Who Will be King? Two Ways To Live by Matthias Media

This booklet is clearly and simply written for children and will serve as a companion to our chronological gospel presentation during each week of camp. After it is used as a review of each weeks teaching, it will be a take home for the kids.

Project 3 • 200 copies • estimated cost $150

Kids' Questions About The Bible and Creation by Cheryl Fawcett and Robert Newman

This book will serve as our cabin devotions book for our three junior camps (ages 8-12). It takes a narrative approach to answering questions that children have about God and Creation. It is our hope to incorporate the narratives and scripture in these chapters into our gathering times as well as cabin devotions. It will be an excellent book for each camper to take home with them after camp.

Project 4 • 50 copies • estimated cost $250 
Project 5 • 60 copies • estimated cost $300
