Camp Bible: The Journey
In 2020 our Camp Bible team of directors offered free weekly evening programing led by Kessler Park UMC, FUMC Sherman, FUMC Richardson and White Rock UMC church leaders via Zoom. We will also had free resources for local churches to host their own "Camp Bible" experience, as well as Christmas Boxes that will support Bridgeport Camp and include Traci Smith's "Faithful Families for Advent and Christmas" AND a Bridgeport mask!
