Anchors Away Camp
This summer camp ministry is sponsored and run by Jackson Church. Each weekly program is designed to teach children in grades pre-K to 8 about a new and exciting topic in a safe and fun environment. Since each week focuses on a specific theme and is independent from the other, children can be signed up for only the weeks and topics that they are interested in. Each week of camp gives the children a chance to explore and grow deeper in their faith through devotions, fellowship, music, games, and activities. They also engage in camp activities including arts and crafts and recreation. Camp runs from July 5th – July 29th from 9am-2pm. Registration is open now!

Candy Donations
We are looking for bags of individually wrapped candy to fill our plastic eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt. All donations should be in by April 5th. You can bring them to church on Sunday or drop them off at the office during the week. Thank you for your donations!
