Dear FCC family,
We have received word that there is a fire burning in the Black Forest area NE of Colorado Springs. This is where our church camp is located. Camp La Foret is among the facilities under evacuation. We do not yet know what this will mean for next week's scheduled camps. Please pray pray that the firefighters are able to get the fire out quickly. Pray for the 6 families that have already lost homes in that area. Pray for the safety of first responders & fire crews. Let us pray for all the residents of the Colorado Springs area as the memories of last year's Waldo Canyon fire will be on their minds.
The Black Forest fire is currently one of 3 significant fires burning in Colorado, which is experiencing gusty winds today and record-breaking hot weather. (Laura Witte, wife of the TCC CEO & member at South Broadway told me it's 99 at her house near Denver today.)
Camp La Foret is a wonderful historic facility with beautiful views and tall trees. It is owned by the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Church of Christ. Our Disciples youth have gone to summer camps & midwinter retreat there for many years.
