Welcome to Bambi Lake Life!



ROSCOMMON, MI – Thank-you to every church that has supported Bambi Lake through participation at one of our camps or retreats. Thank-you to every church that supported Bambi Lake through giving to the Cooperative Program or the Francis Brown State Mission Offering. God is using you and your generosity to further His Kingdom through Bambi Lake.


But what is Bambi Lake? I ask this question because I never want to assume everyone knows about Bambi Lake. I ask this question because after researching our records from the last 3-4 years I have discovered that of the 305 churches in our convention only 10% of the SBC Churches in Michigan have participated in an event at Bambi Lake. Fortunately, this means Bambi Lake has tremendous potential for growth and expansion. So, what is Bambi Lake? Let me explain it this way...
