Five Stones Church — High School | Summer 2016

Five Stones High School at WM Group.jpg

Last week we enjoyed Five Stone Church’s High School crowd at Whisper Mountain! These Charlotte teens brought excitement and friendship along with them!

Five Stones at Whisper Mountain Camp

They run their week a little different than the other groups through the summer, so although their schedule feels a little more fast and furious, they enjoyed the best of camp before week’s end!

We saw a couple teens give their lives to Jesus (you’re hottin’ and hollerin’ right?!!!) and many more find breakthrough in places they felt captive! Jesus makes us new, He frees us and changes everything for the better! These High Schoolers experienced Him in some personal ways this week!

Their leaders love them well, make all things fun and help lead the way to deeper walks with Him!

Five Stones High Schoolers, thank you for coming and spending a week with us! May you continue to chase after all things Jesus!

Relevance Community at Camp Summer 2016

Relevance at Whisper Mountain Camp 2

Last week we enjoyed the company of Relevance Community — a mission work team from Florida! They have come for the past few years to make a difference serving in our Robbinsville community! The nursing home loves them as they sing and talk with the residents; the elderly in need of yard work help or minor outdoor house improvements can’t thank them enough; those unable to climb stairs any longer appreciate the ramps that have been built for them; those at our local thrift store appreciate the added hands making their work lighter; those all around town appreciate the bright light that comes to town when Relevance shows up!

We also got to celebrate the lives of 5 fantastic people throughout the week! We are used to 1 or 2 parties in a camp week — but 5?!!! That was fun!

Relevance Birthday Celebrations

This year we added in a small sliver of the camp life at the end of their work week! They enjoyed tubing at Deep Creek and team building on the low ropes course!

Their attitudes are some of the best I’ve seen in the teen world. Something about serving others develops such a joy and contentment in life! Inspiring for all of us watching!

Relevance, thank you for spending a week with us this summer! Keep serving Jesus and loving each other well!

A Match Made in Heaven

SUMMER CAMP SEASON is here! Which means a lot of things, but for today it means we are playing match maker and we wondered if you would be a part?Math Problem AaS

Our staff work their tails off when they join our team! Servant leadership is our thing, intentionally connecting is our thing, warring on the front lines of spiritual battles is our thing. It’s just part of the camp package. While our summer staff team is with us, it’s crucial for them to receive the encouragement and prayer support to do the work they do all summer long. So what can you do to help? (so glad you asked!)

2016 Adopt a Staff Header

You can adopt one of our staff for the summer! From June – August (first week) you could send them texts letting them know you are praying for them, you could send care packages with some of their favorite things (we send you a list of these!), you could email them encouragements — anything you can think of to keep them going, to bolster their spirits, to spiritually uplift them makes a HUGE difference!

SO, what do you say? Can we match you up? Will YOU adopt a Whisper Mountain Summer Staffer this year?

Submit your YES to Cassi below and she’ll take it from there! (That’s me — and I’m thrilled you’re trying something new to help someone else! You won’t be sorry!)

Thank you for sharing in the work of proclaiming Christ by supporting our staff! We always say it, but we will say it again — we couldn’t do this without you!


Garden Inspired Crafting Event

March Craft Promo Info Block

We are getting ready for this year’s first craftivities event! Make time to make things and bring some simple beauty to your days! Our last event in the fall was a great success. One woman said after the day was over, “We didn’t know how it would be to spend the whole day crafting, but it turned out to be so fun and so refreshing! We are glad we came!”

Plan to join us Saturday, March 12 at our Camp Hub from 9-4. Lunch and snacks are included, as are easy conversations and all the supplies you’ll need! You’ll go home with awesome swag bags and three crafts inspired by the garden! The Day Event Cost is $50. The Weekend Price (for out of owners sleeping over and receiving two breakfasts) is $75.

We keep these events smaller so don’t wait to grab your spot! Email today to let us know you’re coming!

We hope to see you there!
