Vacation Bible Camp 2023 (July 10-14)

The theme for Camp this year is “Stellar – Shine Jesus’ Light.”  The outer space theme brings with it cosmic memory buddies: Cosmo-a star; Ringo-a planet; Luna-the moon; Sol-the sun; and Halley-a comet.  The bible stories are from the life of Jesus, and the lesson on Friday teaches us that the good news about Jesus is for everyone!

The dates are July 10-14, 8:30 am -12 noon. The cost is $25. There is also an all day option which requires a separate registration and payment. For information contact Pastor Carolyn: carolyn@labcoakland.org.

All Church Family Retreat (August 4-6)


We will be gathering at Redwood Glen Conference Center

The church retreat is a great time to get to know members of the Lakeshore family in a relaxed setting.  Along with the sessions there is time for recreation and plenty of free time to explore the camp grounds.

Rev. Douglas Avilesbernal, Evergreen Executive Minister, will be the leader for the adults.
