CIAlogoCompassion In Action Service Camp is for kids entering the 5th and 6th Grades in Fall 2015. It is a fun-filled, service-oriented, week-long adventure helping others. CIA Campers will be sharing God's love and wonderful message of salvation with all those they come in contact with. Youth are challenged in their faith to develop servant hearts for Christ. Past projects have included meals-on-wheels delivery, working at the Food Bank, organizing school kits for orphan children overseas, conducting a car wash to raise funds for the new children's hospital, building a prayer garden on campus, and other unique and challenging service projects.

Youth take a hands-on approach to serving the Lord and they work hard! We are always amazed at how hard these youth work and it is evident that they grow in their faith. This age group desires to have a purpose in the Church and in the community.
