2023 Theme – Peace! [Romans 5:1] 

Family Camp Recharge – February 17-20, 2023

Guest Teacher: Julie Smith

Come enjoy a weekend full of family fun, Bible study, engaging activities, and renewal. Julie Smith will lead Bible studies for adults throughout the weekend while our counselors teach youth through age specific activities, Bible readings, and games. 

Julie Smith became a pastor in 1998. She has served congregations in Clarkfield, Bock, and Springfield (all in Minnesota). In addition, she served for several years as a Bible camp director. She is also a co-founder of St. Paul Lutheran Seminary.

Julie’s main hobby is running around to whatever activities her seven nieces and nephews are involved in. She is a sports fan, and while high school football is a favorite, NBA games featuring any former Minnesota Timberwolves are a close second. Like all Minnesotans, Julie believes as many summer days as possible should be spent at the lake, with the Twins on the radio. Please don’t ask her about the Vikings. 

Julie is a graduate of Luther Seminary and loves any opportunity to teach, whether that’s leading silly Bible skits with first graders or giving seminary students some pointers in preaching. She has previously served on the LCMC Board of Trustees and has worked with the Augustana and Epiphany Districts of LCMC.

Guest Preacher: Culynn Curtis

Culynn will serve as our guest preacher during worship services.
