SURGEOur DBA camps are fast approach­ing and I hope your children/grandchildren are mak­ing plans to be with us. Both our camps are qual­i­ty “spend the night” camps that are rea­son­ably priced which makes it pos­si­ble for most chil­dren to attend. Both camps include excit­ing bibDBA Childrens Cample teach­ing, ener­getic wor­ship ser­vices, food, lodg­ing and a bunch of fun. Remem­ber you will save $20 for the children’s camp if you reg­is­ter by tomor­row, June 10th. For reg­is­tra­tion forms and infor­ma­tion on both camps, please call our DBA office or paste the fol­low­ing in your favorite web brows­er: https://dbachurches.com/summer-camps/
