"What do you stand for?"
Sports? Family? Fun? World peace? Church? The poor? Grades? Myself? Nothing?
The answers to that question are endless. But a person’s ultimate answer says it all. About themselves, their priorities, their possibilities, and even their destiny.

Here's our WC2010 Photo Album on MVC's facebook page.<- click for pics
Our WorkCamp tradition continues in the summer of 2011 with a week-long mission adventure in Grand Rapids, MI. At camp, we’ll be joining with about 400 other teens and adults to minister to the people of Grand Rapids, doing needed home repairs and sharing our love and our faith with them all through the week. No experience is needed to be a Workcamper- you’ll be surprised at how much you can do! Now’s the time… Huddle with your parents, talk over your summer options, pray about your decision, and if you decide to register for Workcamp, plan for a life-changing experience!

Prayer Request and Scripture we'll be focusing on..
