Cross Training Summer Camp

cross-trainingThe CrossTraining philosophy combines children with teens and adults putting them in a challenging, high adventure environment in order to teach them spiritual truths. This year our theme is “Bold Faith: Getting Out of the Boat”, where we’ll talk about courage, faith, and stepping out of our comfort zones. Throughout the week, each camper will discover leadership traits such as goal setting, team work, listening skills, self-discipline, overcoming fears, and the reward of serving others. We want to come alongside you and help equip your child for life’s adventures while they make new friends and experience new challenges.

Upcoming Events

Youth Missions Banquet

Sunday May 17
5:00 – 7:00 PM
Potomac Baptist Church

The purpose of missions is to share the gospel message whereever it may carry us – whether to the inner city of Washington Heights, New York or to a town that doesn’t exist on most maps: Port Alsworth, Alaska. God has taken us to both of these places and more in just the past four yeaars.

Our Upcoming Trip
Nashville, TN
July 5 – 11, 2015

This year we will be training at an M-FUGE Mission Camp, going through different field experiences in various mission areas.  We hope to show all of the community of Nashville that God’s love is much stronger than any fear.

On Sunday, May 17, the youth group at PBC will be hosting a lasagna dinner as a fundraiser for our trip.  There will be student testimonies, entertainment, and a chance to hear more about what exactly a trip to Tennessee entails.  If you cannot make it, we would ask for your prayers, because only in the strength of God is such a trip possible.

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
— Romans 10:13-14 (NIV)
