ROSCOMMON, MI – We are so excited to be able to move forward with our mission to get Michigan Campers on Mission (MI COM) officially organized! Campers on Mission is a national fellowship of evangelical Christian campers who look for opportunities to share their faith and love of Jesus Christ through their participation in mission activities while camping. Two characteristics of Campers on Mission are a love of the great outdoors and a love of sharing Jesus. While enjoying the camping experience, they participate in mission projects including church planting, construction, disaster relief recovery, Backyard Bible Clubs, fairs and festivals, campgrounds, auto racing, parades, and truck stops. All engaging in opportunities to tell others about Jesus. COMers are active members of local churches and “on mission” Christians,“sharing Christ” through word and deed “as we go”.
We have scheduled a few days at Bambi Lake Baptist Camp for us to come together to camp, hold meetings to accomplish the organizational needs, and to relax in the most beautiful camp in Michigan. Since this is not a “work opportunity”, we will be paying for our stay this time. 2020 Bambi rates per night are as follows:
Campsite $25, Electric & Water (dump station available)
Lodge $49, 2 beds, bathroom
MI COM Organizational Rally at Bambi Lake Baptist Conference Center Wednesday, July 29 - Saturday, August 1, 2020
We will be providing meals; and if you would like, you may donate towards that expense. Coffee and punch will be available at mealtimes. We do request you bring your own water bottles and pop if you’d prefer.
You do not have to be a Camper On Mission member to attend. Come! Invite your Christian family and friends who might be interested in being a volunteer missionary with COM. This will be a wonderful time for everyone to meet us and learn about who we are and what we do through COM ministry. We need your reservation as soon as possible so we can organize the food and lodging needs for everyone.
