Cypress Church Youth Return From Sierra Adventure

During the second week of August teens and youth from the Cypress, Los Alamitos and Buena Park areas spent six days in the Sierras at Hume Lake Christian Camps. These camps have been providing life changing programs for Christian students and families for 64 years. This summer more than 100 youth, teens and adult counselors from Cypress Church participated in the camp program.

The summer theme for 2010 at Hume Lake is “Excusez-Mwa!?...” The program addresses the "me-centered culture" of today's youth by challenging students to understand that, as Christians, they were bought with a price by the death of Christ and the life they live belongs to Him. Each person is called daily to selflessly submit to Christ and excuse themselves out of the way so that God gets the glory for life’s accomplishments.

Camp activities during the week of August 8th through 14th included competitive sporting events, swimming, tug-of war, obstacle courses, Frisbee toss, bicycle riding and more. There were times for spiritual reflection and mental refreshment in the beautiful pine forest. Students also engaged in group singing, Bible study and worship.

This annual summer camp program is just one part of a wide range of activities for youth and teens offered by Cypress Church throughout the year. The Awana and Amazing Journeys clubs for kids will begin meeting in September. Beach days, field trips and missions opportunities are also offered as well as weekly High School and Junior High group get togethers.

Information about these activities is available from Student Ministry leader Danny Kugelberg or Children’s Ministry leader Mike Haugland at (714) 952-3001. The Cypress Church campus is located at 6143 Ball Road just east of Valley View.
