Light of Christ Camping

Camp Timber-lee, East Troy, Wisconsin

September 18-20, 2020

For over 25 years, Light of Christ Church has been setting aside time to get away and camp together. This is a great opportunity to find friendship, unplug, experience adventure, and strengthen your faith. This year we will be returning to Camp Timber-lee in East Troy, Wisconsin for a late summer/early fall excursion.  It doens't matter if you're an experienced camper or if you're new to the adventure - campers of all ages are welcome! Set along side the banks of beautiful Peter's Lake, Camp Timber-lee offers a range of activities for campers of all ages - boating (kayaks, canoes, paddleboats), fishing, swimming, rock climbing, horse-back riding, zip-lining, hay rides, leather shop crafts, archery, and more! To learn more, contact Bonnie Kautz-Prasse, Director of Adult Ministries.

Algonquin/Lake in the Hills

Interfaith Food Pantry

Thursdays, 8-11am

Pantry prep help is needed during this crisis to stock the pantry on Thursdays, from 8-11am.  On days the pantry is open (T/Th/1st & 3rd Sat), new procedures are in place to take food to the vehicles from the pantry based on the number of people in the family. If interested in helping, please contact Mary Terese at dmt6200@gmail.com and let them know you are from Light of Christ.

Team World Vision

Run/Walk the Half/Full Marathon

Calling all runners, NON-runners, and walkers... Lack of clean water is a leading cause of death in the developing world. Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day due to illness caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation and unsafe hygiene practices. Team World Vision's five training plans empowers normal everyday folks to run, run/walk, or walk a marathon/half marathon to bring clean water and fullness of life to people and communities in Africa. Let's do this! Contact Judi Tschappat 847.346.2255 jtschapp@worldvision.org or Pr. Sharon for more information.
