Construction on Highway 3 near AGLC: May – Fall 2018

By Children and Youth Minister, Tim Marburger

I just returned from a Camp Wapo informational meeting and want to share some very important information as you look ahead to 2019 Camp Wapo.

The cost has increased this year:

  • SEEDS (grades 2 and 3) July 12—14—$175
  • Youth Camp (grades 4 – 8) at Wapo July 14—19—$455
  • Youth Camp (grades 9-12) at Ox Lake July 14-19—$455

In addition to horse and fishing camp, they are also adding a soccer and running camp (additional $80). Priority registration will begin on Tuesday, January 15.  This is Amazing Grace.

We have found a VERY profitable way to raise funds. At our last Cub bagging day, two youth raised $100 each and the third raised $200! Parents can work with their youth and all monies are divided with those working that shift. Another tentative bagging is scheduled for Saturday, February 9, 10 AM – 6 PM.

Last year, AGLC sent 16 youth to camp and I’m hoping we can do this again in 2019. Also, remember that I have some scholarship money available, should you need some. Do not hesitate to talk with me about this.

Joint Ministry Activities

Nerf Challenge

Thanks to Zion Lutheran, Cottage Grove, for their invitation to participate in a Nerf Challenge on October 20  We had four youth attend and participate with a group of about 20. Here are a couple of pictures from that fun day.

Another new activity with Luther Memorial Church was for Grades 3 – 6. Fourteen kids played miniature golf at the Mall of America.
