Lake Geneva CCCA Conference

The LWBC staff is currently at the Lake Geneva CCCA Conference. It's been a really great trip for them so far. They have all been attending individual tracks, specific to their areas of camp, as well as listening to main session speakers. To see their schedule, you can go here.

The CCCA conference is always an encouraging time to be with other like-minded "camp" people from WI and IA.

Please keep the staff in your prayers, as they're gaining new ideas and meeting others, and as they're traveling back to LWBC on Wednesday.

Thanks!

Our crew of 30+ people will be leaving for Juarez, Mexico this Friday, March 5th. Please keep us in your prayers as we spend the week serving the Lord down there. We're hoping to tile, dry wall, clean and paint around the LCI campus as well as visit an orphanage, hand out scripture materials and to participate in outreach to teens in the area.

We so appreciate your prayer support as we travel to Mexico!

Help us Help the Needy in Jaurez, Mexico

Dennis Siler’s son Matt is serving the Lord down in Juarez, Mexico at Life Challenge International (LCI). Life Challenge helps thousands of people every month by providing food, clothing, school programs, supplies and labor to repair homes, and helping families start up and find jobs.

Matt is currently at Living Waters Bible Camp and is going to be driving the old LWBC bus to Mexico on June 27; please pray that it makes it there! This is a rare time to have so much space for larger items to get to where the needs are great for a large quantity of people.

What follows is a short list of items that will help continue to assist in how God is using LCI to help transform a community with His truth and love. If you are able to donate any of these items please e-mail Dennis (at) lwbc (dot) org and we will make arrangements. (Please note: the items will need to be loaded into the bus no later than June 27th.)

Thank you!

Family Camp #1 Canceled

We regret to announce that we'll be canceling Family Camp #1 (the week of July 5th - 11th), as well as any TST’s who were planning to serve during that week at camp.

For this summer, we've decided that it would be best to combine Family Camps #1 and #2 in order that both the campers/families and staff are able to get the most out of their time at camp. However, we are still planning to host a full week of family camp in July next summer (and those thereafter).

Please note that there is still is room for more campers during Family Camp #2 (August 8th - 12th), so be sure to tell those who you think would be interested in joining us for that camp! We want to make sure that families with financial needs are not hindered by the cost so, please let us know if you would be interested in a scholarship.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and are very thankful for your understanding.

God Bless,
LWBC Staff

Winter Events!

We’ve had a lot of events going on at camp lately. We recently had Young Adult Weekend as well as Creation Camp. We had a full house for Creation Camp and it was great to have Mike Riddle from Answers In Genesis as the guest speaker.

Next, we'll be hosting Winterama and Father-Son Weekend. There's still space in both groups, if you'd like to join us! Just click on the image for each respective brochure.

Upcoming Event - Leadership Training

Elevate Your Leadership Effectiveness

Are you passionate about leading others? If so, you're encouraged to join us for an intensive three-day workshop with Tim Kight of Focus3 from October 20th-23rd at Living Waters Bible Camp near LaCrosse, Wis.

This workshop will prepare you to teach the "Life in Focus" curriculum to others by teaching you to effectively understand how one can manage his/her thoughts, feelings, and actions as he/she responds to the ever-changing circumstances of life. By learning these skills, you'll be equipped to equip others with the biblical principles - or life skills - at the heart of excellence in Christ.

Tim Kight was overwhelmingly received at the Wisconsin / Iowa CCCI Sectional and has been a much appreciated speaker at past national conferences.

Cost: $525 includes three days of food, lodging, training, as well as all facilitator tools.
Note: The fee of $525 is a significantly-reduced fee from Tim's normal rates - we're offering his workshop at this price in order to help ministry leaders help train others.


For more information, check out lwbc.org or if you have any questions feel free to email Dennis Siler at dennis@lwbc.org or call 608-634-4373 x22.

To register, please email Missy Wetterling at missy@lwbc.org or call 608-634-4373 x21.

Life in Focus Training: October 20th - 23rd

This 3-day certification workshop will prepare you to teach Life in Focus to the people in your ministry by equipping you to equip others with the life skills at the heart of excellence in Christ.

Costs:
$525 per person

This Includes:
Workbook/Facilitator Guide
PowerPoint Slides
DISC Behavior Style Assessment
Lodging
Food
