Getting ready for English Camp 2016!

Since 2004, Bayview OPC has partnered with Jerry and Marilyn Farnik, OP missionaries to the Czech Republic, by providing a team to present the gospel in the form of a summer family English Camp.  The camp is advertised as one run by Christians, and families are invited to a resort for one week to attend classes, go on day trips, enjoy sporting activities, and put on skits and talent shows. All reading lessons are from Scripture and oral discussions revolve around the stories presented in the lessons.  This year's camp took place July 13-25, 2016.
