(W)HOLE IN ONE Golf Camp is put on by Our Savior Lutheran Church and is an opportunity for young athletes to grow in both their golf skills and their faith in Jesus. The philosophy of the camp is to teach solid fundamental golf skills while providing Christian fellowship. All of our instructors have an enthusiasm for children, as well as experience playing and/or coaching golf. We want your child to increase their golf skills while meeting new friends and having lots of fun!

We’ll be covering a variety of golf skills including: grip, stance, swing, chipping, driving, golf etiquette, and strategy. There will also be faith building lessons revolving around our camp theme: (W)HOLE IN ONE. Lessons from God’s Word will remind participants that Jesus came fix the brokenness of our sin and make us whole again in his love and forgiveness. Click here to see a full camp schedule.

Jesus told teaching stories, or parables, about regular people and everyday things, stuff his disciples would be familiar with. But he did so to reveal deep, spiritual insights about them and their world in order to lead them into greater truth about him. The real stories you’ll encounter in Engage will definitelychallenge the way you think and may even question the way you feel, but with a profound purpose. Through them and through the meaningful conversation they’ll inspire, you’ll learn more about yourself, those around you, and the profound love God has for you through his Son. This new set of Bible class lessons will start on Sunday, June 6th—please join us at 9am on Sundays
