Kids Camp GAGG staff - July 31st -August 4th
GAGG staff is a great chance to serve others this summer. The GAGG staff goes to kid's camp to serve by cleaning, babysitting, setting up games and the like. Jesus came not to be served but to serve, and this is a great chance to follow His example! GAGG staff is also a ton of fun as well, getting to play games and hangout, but their primary purpose is to serve. Note: to be a GAGG staff you need to put in an application; ask Kaleb or Justin for one and we can get you one.
