Parents and Grandparents often talk about the good old days or the simpler life. During camp this summer we will look at some of the simple basics from years gone by and also look at what basic information before leaving earth that God would have us know. We will review the basic principles of Christian teachings and how they can apply practically to our daily lives. Sign up for your camp today and get back to the basics of your faith and life.
We will spend time exploring the basics of living in community and building affirming relationships with others. We will explore the basics of the Christian faith – like the Ten Commandments and the creeds and the Lord’s Prayer. We will focus on the importance of Scripture in our faithwalk. In all Basic Training in our Christian Faith.
In a world filled with more things than we know what to do with or “Too Much” technology we want to spend some time getting back to face to face conversations and “simple” sharing of friendship and faith. Take some time to spend with God and your fellow campers in getting Back to Basics.

The scrumptious pies and delicious supper brought in $302.20
Thank you to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for providing supplemental funds for our event!
Next year is our 15th Annual Quilt Auction and we have some items we would like to have made into quilts with retreat-wear (t-shirts and sweatshirts from the past). We are asking any interested quilters to take some of these items and make a quilt, banner, wallhanging, pillow, etc. for our next auction. We will give prizes for the Best Witness, Most Creative, Most Historical, and People’s Choice. Contact us to find out more!
Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you next year!
That is the phrase you can expect to hear from Several Korean children when you see them in heaven. That is also the line used by a man who had contemplated Suicide – but remembered what we talked about when he was at camp and called his Pastor instead. The stories continue to multiply every year we are in existence at Shepherd’s Hill @ The Crossroads – God is using this ministry to touch many lives. I hope you can help us out with a thank-offering again this year.
Your thank-offering will help supply camperships for numerous campers again this summer. I will also help us stay up to date on our mortgage payments and help us to continue to touch lives with the Love of Jesus Christ for yet another year. “Thank you for giving to the Lord”!!
As I said in our brochure for this next year — Do you know just how big your life really is??? Perhaps you think of yourself as nothing but a tiny splash in the pool of Life — but the ripples that come from the impact of your splash travel further than you might ever imagine possible. Knowing this makes me want to start doing cannonballs. Touched by Christ our ripples touch others, whose ripples touch others, whose ripples touch others, whose… well you get the picture.
Give a gift to camp this year and make ripples with us. Start the ripple by making a gift. Ride the ripple to the next wave by registering for an event or gifting the fees for a student in your congregation to attend a camp. The next ripple could be asking a friend to come along — come listen to stories of how ripples have affected others and how they keep going long after the first splash took place.
It’s time to jump in – no more toe dipping. Its time to move beyond the “whatever” and the “same old, same old. Do something that will live on long after you’re gone. Put yourself in the loving hands of the destiny maker and make a splash with your one and only life. Help us MAKE IT RIPPLE-this year at Shepherd’s Hill at the Crossroads!!!
The ripple effect of your gift is only known by our heavenly Father at this point – but He has given us this opportunity to give so He can do His work in the hearts and Lives of the many people we will see come through our doors this coming year. Send your gift today and see how God uses your gift to MAKE IT RIPPLE. Thank You again for giving to the Lord.
Rev Joel L. Brandvold
