Ask anyone. They would probably tell you that we couldn’t have asked for a better first year in ministry for Haven on the Rock. From the proposal of a new name, to the hard work of people who have been involved in this camp for decades, to God’s mighty hand along the way, it was a thing to behold. I was reminded of the verse in Romans, where Paul says, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Continue reading
This is the time of year to make plans. To mark the passing of time, to aspire to greater things, or perhaps just to recognize that we’re halfway through the dark days. For me this time meant remembering pain, and change. Remembering love, challenge, and growth, all mixed together into a puree of emotion that I don’t know I’ll ever separate. I also can’t help but look back on my time at camp and ask myself “was it worth it?” Continue reading
What is an Oinkerraiser you may ask? The latest Haven on the Rock fundraiser, that’s what! Because of a generous donation of a pig to Haven on the Rock, we are able to offer a half of a processed pig to two happy individuals. That is pounds of delicious pork (roast, chops, BACON!, loin, etc) all for a small gift of $25 to Haven on the Rock. Don’t like pork? Think about all your friends who would be so excited to receive such a surprise…AND you would be helping the ministry of Haven on the Rock all at the same time! All you have to do to enter the raffle is purchase a ticket for $25 and then wait until we post/call the winners in January. Don’t hesitate to call 307-577-5267 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to buy raffle tickets.
Let the Oinkerraiser begin!
From horse rides to tomahawk throwing, from rappelling to slingshots, from canoes to lake day, from Monday to Friday, from unbelief to a walk with Christ, what a summer it has been and it isn’t even over yet! We have so much to catch you up on, but for now, hopefully these pictures will help you get warmed up!
We have seen God work in some incredible and even unexpected ways this summer. We are excited to continue to see how He moves in the weeks to come.
“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!” -1 Samuel 12:16
Old friends, new beginnings, and the ever present winds of change.
Last night as I fell asleep I couldn’t help but notice the peculiar quiet that happens at camp when it’s not in session. It’s the same thing that makes parent’s scramble to find their children because “it’s TOO quiet!” Now don’t get me wrong, I love showing up a few days early to camp just to enjoy that quiet, but it also feels like the very rocks around here are waiting in eager anticipation for those cars to start rumbling down the driveway and unloading people of all ages and walks of life, adults, kids, families, and single folks… all here for one unified purpose… for camp.

This was taken yesterday after a good healthy rain we got at camp. I was thinking of all the things this picture says about our incredible God.
He loves beauty.
He is creative.
There is hope in Him, because even though the storms come, God will make things good again.
He keeps His promises.
What an awesome God we serve. How can we help but be encouraged that such a God would love us and want the very best for our lives? What a blessing as we continue into this new summer season.
At Haven on the Rock we truly believe that every kid should be able to come to camp and that money shouldn’t be an issue. Because of this, every year we count on donors from all over to help us make camp happen. We are having a garage sale Saturday May 25th at the Beverly Plaza (2123 12th St. Casper, WY 82601) in Casper! We are still collecting donations for this sale, so take a look around the good ole garage or basement and bring us some of those forgotten treasures for an incredibly good cause! You can donate the items for the sale by dropping them off by Friday May 24th at Bromley Real Estate (2109 E. 12th Casper, WY 82601). If you have any questions please call Ryan at #307-258-3766.
Due to weather conditions (yea moisture!) we are postponing the workday that was scheduled for this weekend until May17-18. If you have any questions please feel free to call #307-577-5267.
