Our third annual Freedom Festival will be held on Sunday July 1 at the Whispering Winds Camp (about 2 miles west of 73rd Street North and Ridge Road).
The Pools will open at 3 pm with free admission and will remain open through the evening, with life guards on duty. The pool water will be warmed by solar-heat, the concrete pool decks and benches will be cooled by special paint, and the Lodge will be cooled by ceiling fans and air-conditioning.
Games and activities will be provided for the kids. A golf cart will be available for transportation needs or to tour the Camp grounds and trails. We will have a Freedom-themed Vesper service at 5 pm, on the south lawn. The service will include patriotic songs and ringing of our bell tower (Let Freedom Ring).
Following Vespers, we will have dinner in the Lodge. The Camp will barbecue bratwurst, hamburgers, and hot dogs for dinner. Guests are requested to bring pot-luck side dishes and desserts. After dinner, activities will continue and families may set off BYO fireworks near the basketball court, provided a fireworks ban has not been issued by the County.

West Dining Room- 9:30 Sunday mornings
Join us as we continue on our journey of asking questions to grow in our faith, develop and advance our spirituality. Each Sunday we look deeply into doctrines of the Church in the light of 21st century knowledge and experience. We seek to understand who we are and what we are to be within this grand experiment we call life. Facilitated by Pat Welker
