After much prayer and deliberation, the Bible Camp Board has arrived at the decision to cancel our 2020 plans for Bible Camp until June 2021.
This was a difficult decision because, like many of you, we love Bible Camp and know the positive impact it has on people for the gospel. However, given the current situation and guidelines instituted by our governing officials, it is unfortunately no longer feasible to hold Bible Camp as normal in 2020.
We are incredibly thankful to Warm Beach Camp who is graciously allowing us to transfer our 2020 contract to 2021. We would ask that you keep them in your prayers and consider supporting them financially as they are facing a number of uncertainties in the wake of this pandemic.
We are exploring virtual opportunities for 2020 to both alleviate the loss of this year and keep us excited about the future of Bible Camp, which will return in 2021!
I will leave you with this exhortation from the Apostle Paul:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7)
Blessings in Christ,
Rev. Alan Johnson

Welcome to BibleCampRocks, site of the Lutheran Brethren Pacific-North Bible Camp. Whether you like to camp or stay in a lodge, Bible Camp is a great place to spend a week of your summer. It is held at Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center in Stanwood, Washington during the last week of June each year. This year we are excited to learn about the Scandalous Grace of Jesus Christ, as depicted in the commentary on Parables written by our co-speakers Daniel Emery Price and Erick Sorenson entitled Scandalous Stories.
We pray "that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know...the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." (Eph 1:18-19a) This power is available to each of us through the "living and active" Word of God, which shapes our faith, our life and our mission. Come join us, and allow God to awaken and increase your faith through the teaching and preaching of His Word.
The whole family is encouraged to take advantage of this time away from everyday life to experience God at camp. There are fun activities for all ages, including the SONrise (age 4-3rd grade), SURGE for 4th-6th grades, SONBURST for 7th-12th+, and a vibrant adult program.
