“It’s not all about me anymore. Since Jesus lives in me, it’s all about Him!”

This summer at Camp Bennett, learn about Christ’s gift to you and what He has planned for your future. Your life will never be the same.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. --Galatians 2:20
