Ambassadors Soccer Camp was offered this summer Aug. 1-3.
We welcomed approximately seventy children each evening. Children had fun, learned many skills about soccer, and learned about Christ’s good news! RRPC sponsored the camp in cooperation with OneLife Community Church and with the help of believers from a total of six local Christian congregations.

If you were not able to have your child participate, you are welcome to send those who are four and older to Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. in the Log Chapel. Starting in September, we will have an active Friday evening program every other week for girls eight and older, called Girls Growing Gracefully in the Light of Christ. Boys eight and older participate in Christian Service Brigade.
We thank Ambassadors Football in Ohio which imparted this soccer camp ministry philosophy to us through the on-site mentoring of Aaron Soby. During the first week in August, over 70 campers in the age range 5 through 12 receive high quality soccer skills coaching, and enjoy playing soccer games in a competitive and fun environment, surrounded by the Christian love of coaches and staff. From 2010 through 2022, Ambassadors Football has provided a high quality “Bible Time” sets of lessons which we use to present the good news of Christ clearly.
Head Coaches Chris Miller and Nick Miller from OneLife Community Church orchestrate the action on the field, and Pastor Ned directs the camp, with his wife Lois providing registration skills and organization. In addition to our cooperating church, RRPC has received enthusiastic support for the camp over the past ten years from some of the youth and adults of Adamsville Baptist, Durkeetown Baptist, Pine Knolls, New Hope Church and Truthville Baptist, for which we are very grateful. Financial support comes from Christians in Orange City, Iowa who have caught a vision for reaching out in the name of Christ in the greater Glens Falls area. We are grateful for their partnership. Contact Pastor Ned at 518-932-1967 for information about the camp, including registration.
