Happy New Year! It has obviously been an unprecedented year with the shut-down, pandemic, and election. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, life has been very different this year.
2000 + years ago, Mary and Joseph had an unprecedented year as well! From the angels, to pregnancy, to visiting Elizabeth, to the census, to the stable, to the visiting shepherds; it was one crazy thing on top of another! And it was God who was working through the events of man demonstrating He was still on the throne and interested in providing for His people a Savior! A Savior who can empathize with all aspects of life and meet us in our times of deepest need! (Hebrews 4:14-16).
One thing I’ve taken away from this year is our need for connection. God has made us for relationship with Himself and with others!! What are some things you have learned in 2020?
Our summer camps looked a little different this past year but we were still able to function near “normal.”
We would appreciate your prayers as we make plans for summer! Please let us know if there are specific ways we can be praying for you!
In light of the various covid restrictions for our health district, we have made a few decisions about our upcoming camps. Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to have our basketball camp this summer. We are currently postponing our Jr High camp to the first full week of August. It is yet to be determined if this will be a 2, 3, or 4 day camp given the guidelines. A more definitive decision will be made as the various state guidelines are released. We are keeping our elementary camps as scheduled pending our health district is moved into phase 2. We feel able to reasonably do camp within those guidelines and will do our best to accommodate. We are also making preparations for Travel Camp as well. We understand in these uncertain times that there are going to be varying comfort levels and we want to respect that. That said, registrations can be easily refunded or can be donated to CRC. Thank you for your support and prayer! CRC Staff

CRC is excited to announce a couple of one-day basketball camps for upper elementary and Jr. High students. The 5th-8th grade boys camp will be July 8 with the 5th-8th grade girls camp the following day, July 9. Each camp will be divided into a 5th-6th grade group and a 7th-8th grade group. Due to space restrictions we will only be accepting the first 30 registrations per age group. Please print, fill out, and mail in the brochure below and contact CRC if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org (402) 849-2606
We will again be hosting an area-wide sunrise service to celebrate the risen Savior!! The service will be outdoors at the Hilltop Pavilion on April 21, 2019 at 6:30 AM (will be held at the lodge if there is inclement weather). The pavilion can be accessed using the driveway just West of the 6 Rd and K intersection. We would recommend bringing a blanket and would ask that those who can bring a lawn chair. Light refreshments will be served.
Our workday that was planned for the 23rd and then the 30th will now be April 6th. (Having any equipment on the grass would do more harm than good at this point.) We are going to mainly be doing tree trimming and tree removal. We’ll be working from 9-1 with a lunch meal provided. Thanks in advance if you are able to join us! (Any chainsaws, trimmers, and/or tree removal equipment is welcomed!)
