Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp
Three of Emmanuel’s youth attended the SOLA retreat at Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp February 17 – 19. SOLA, meaning alone, was the focus of the retreat, and we learned that it is through faith alone, grace alone, and Word alone, God loves us. And, that we are never alone because God made us, loves us, accepts us and is with us whatever we are going through. This awesome weekend was filled with fun activities, engaging worship, and fantastic food.
Fortune Lake camp is an awesome place, where new friendships are formed while sharing God’s love!
