Our Camas summer is starting!
There is a lot going at the church this summer, including our signature summer events, Blueberry Breakfast, Summer Musical Drama Camp, and Movies in the Park. Please scroll down information and links!
June 23rd is Messy Church, 5:30-7:30pm
Our theme this month for Messy Church is “Share the story.” We will we celebrate how early Christians who wanted to spread the good news about the love of God went out to meet new people, discover new places and learn new languages. Come for activities, storytelling, with dinner provided.
Messy Church is held once a month–except for the month of July. In July we work have a lot of fun with Camas Days and Blueberry Pancakes. Please join us then! We will get Messy again in August.
Summer Sunday School begins in July
School’s out and for the summer months we plan to celebrate by journeying through a couple of big stories for the kids. First we spend time with the story of Jonah and the Whale. Whew! Next we take on the story of the Tower of Babel. Join us for some whale watching, tower building, and Sunday fun. Learn more about our programs for kids.
July 25th is our famous Blueberry Pancake Breakfast!
An established part of the festivities surrounding Camas Days, our blueberry pancake breakfast is the way to have fun, get fed, and share the community spirit of Camas! Our blueberry pancakes are delicious and filled with fresh berries. Our famous Rose’s sausage always packs ’em in. Our sausage is so popular we will be selling sausage in addition to the breakfast this year for those who want to take some home.
Ticket prices for 2015 are $8 per adult and $4 for children.
Read about our pancake breakfast in last year’s Post Record!
Movies in the Park is every Friday in August!
Bring a blanket or a lawn chair or both to Crown Park in Camas for a free family friendly movie that starts at dusk. Camas United Methodist Church is proud to sponsor this and other family and fun activities for our community. We love it here! Check out our Movies in the Park page for tips and more information.
August 1st is Drive Out Malaria!
Our church is part of the network of Christian Methodist Churches that are working internationally to make the world a better place (learn more about Methodists!) Because there are so many of us across the globe, we can work together to do really big things. One of those big things is Drive Out Malaria! Our church will participate in this effort on August 1st at the Orchard Hills Golf Course in Washougal. Everyone is invited–this is golf for a good cause you do not have to be affiliated with ours or any church. Come and have fun and celebrate the good we can all do together! Drive out Malaria is part of an even bigger Malaria eradication effort. To learn more see Imagine No Malaria.
August 10th – 14th is our Summer Musical Drama Camp!
Last year was our first-ever Drama Camp and what a hit it was! This year we stage another show, we head out west to the town of Goldville to see what those folk have gotten themselves up to. Join us! Registration forms and more information is online on our Summer Drama Camp page.
Camas-Washougal Community Orchestra practices on Thursdays.
Do you love music? Do you wish you could connect with others who share that love?
Learn more about the Camas-Washougal Community Orchestra which practices 5-7pm on Thursdays at the church.
Summer Camp starts now!
Our church is connected to churches and camp organizations all over the Pacific Northwest. There are camps in Oregon, Washington and Idaho that are filled with faith and fun for all ages this summer. Find out more about Summer Camp. Camp is trans-formative for young people. Please consider signing up your child for a lifetime of faith camp experience.
One more very special thing.
We have a very important family at our church, the Maas family. They work together to raise awareness for diabetes with the hope that talking about it and raising funds gets us that little bit closer every day to a cure.
The Maas family tends to make a little local news with their efforts and recently their story was featured by the American Diabetes Association. Learn more about the family, their work, and view the video here.
Summer church hours are variable. Some of our groups will be on hiatus during the summer, but others will continue–some with a modified schedule. To contact the church please email firstname.lastname@example.org
