Dear SHOUT OUT Team Members,

As we move into our fall retreat season, we reflect on the summer we shared. We were able to host over 200 campers in modified programs, including Community Camping, Adventure Camps, and Leaders in Training.

We'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who helped make this summer a success, including our many staff and volunteers. We're grateful for the opportunity we have had to gather once again, and look forward to the coming season of in-person and online programs. There is value in gathering as a community, whether here at Kuriakos or in an online format.

In particular, we are looking forward to Thanksgiving at the Lake and our 91st Anniversary Celebrations. All members of the Kuriakos Community are encouraged to reconnect with this special place. As God has gathered and blessed us through the past summer and the past 90 years, we rejoice in the promise of a bright future for our ministry together.

We remain a people Set Apart to Be Together!
