First English Lutheran Church

Amazing Grace Day Camp
Amazing Grace Day Camp is a partner ministry sponsored by the Southern Ohio Synod of the ELCA and Lutheran Outdoor Ministries in Ohio. Taking place each year in Mid-July, counselors from Lutheran Memorial Camp come to First English to lead camp activities right here in the church. Activities include bible study, arts & crafts, song time, outdoor games, and worship. The energetic and enthusiastic counselors share their faith with the kids, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
