Program - Christina Berry introduced Pastor Gary Dekoekoek.   Gary  provided information on the Unite Camp which is a movement of teenagers who UNITE for a 1/2 week of fun, service and worship.  Teens in grades 8 -12 come together to paint houses in our communities for those who may not be able to do it for themselves.  
This year's event is June 4 - 7, 2019.  Cost to students is $50, although scholarships are available for those who need assistance with this fee.  In 2018 this group painted 5 homes in Sterling & Rock Falls.
