PSALM 18:28
28
LORD, you have brought light to my life; my God, you light up my darkness.
Dear Friends,
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you this weekend. We are thrilled that you have
taken time out of your busy schedule to come to camp! As we welcome the longer, warmer days,
we also get to view the beautiful canvas in nature that only the Master Creator could paint. Colors
are bursting forth in flowers, and you can actually smell spring in the air. As you take in all there is
to offer this weekend, may your walk with the Father be deepened as our souls are IGNITED by
HIS word, HIS love, HIS beauty, and HIS people.
Read this Packet
This packet is loaded with information designed to be a helpful resource for you as you prepare for
your time at SpringHill. Please take time to read through the materials provided and pray for your
time at camp.
Questions
There’s a lot of information in this packet. If you have any questions at all, please contact our

HELPFUL HINTS FOR GUESTS
WHEN YOU ARRIVE
Please enter through the Main Entrance off of 95th Avenue, follow the signs toward the Welcome
Center and park. Registration is from 6:00 – 7:45 pm in the front of the New Frontiers Dining Hall.
Housing will be available for move-in and posted outside the Dining Hall at 4pm. If you choose to
arrive early, you may get settled in and return to the Dining Hall at 6pm to register. Please note that
there will be no meals served or activities open prior to the published schedule.
During registration, you will be given a booklet with an updated schedule and a wristband to wear
throughout the weekend. While you’re in the Dining Hall, you may also sign up for breakout
sessions and up to 2 activities.
Once you have registered, you may drive to your housing area to move into your housing for the
weekend. After you have moved in, please park your vehicle for the weekend and plan to walk to
the various activities and programs.
MEALS AND SNACKS
During registration, a light snack is provided for you to enjoy in the Dining Hall. However, if you
desire a full meal on Friday night you can find fast food just a few miles away. Evart is also the
home to several local restaurants you can enjoy. A late night snack will also be provided around
9:45 at camp as well. You will not walk away from the weekend feeling hungry!
STUDY THE MAP
With more than 900 acres of property, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself and your group with
the camp’s layout. You will also find camp maps, as well as new directional signage around camp
to help you get to where you’re going.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE
There is so much to do at SpringHill! Unfortunately, you can’t do it all in just one weekend. Before
you sign up, think about which breakout sessions or activities are most important to you, then sign
up for those. Activity and Breakout signup is held on Friday from 6-7:45pm and 9:45-10:45pm in
the Dining Hall, with a limit of two activities per person. You may sign up for additional activities on
Saturday beginning at 7:45am in the Welcome Center.
ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS
That’s the best way to get started. Ask lots of questions, we will give you lots of answers. We want
you to have a stress-free weekend where your only responsibility is to have a blast and be
transformed. Let us know how we can help you!
FOR YOUR CONVIENIENCE
There are two designated smoking areas. The white gazebo near the outside amphitheater located
across the New Frontiers Courtyard and the covered benches by the skate shed located on the
New Frontiers Extreme Skating Park. Thank you for not smoking anywhere else on camp.

OUR SPEAKER AND WORSHIP LEADER
HANNAH OUELLETTE
Denver, CO
Hannah has a passion to see women of all ages
rise up and step into all God has called them to be.
Her heart is to bring strength to the local church
and passion to women. Hannah served in youth
ministry with her husband for 10 years at
Cornerstone Church in Highland, MI, before moving
with her family to Denver last fall to help plant Thrive
Church.
Hannah also travels and speaks nationally, and founded a conference called Awaken, which
creates moments for young women to have a divine encounter with God and fulfill their destiny in
Him.
Hannah and her husband Jacob have two young children.

ALANNA STORY
Indianapolis, IN
In the fall of 2008, sisters Ally and Anna felt led to
pursue their original music and began gathering
other musicians with a similar passion for worship
and a vision for awakening; it was then that Alanna
Story was born. Two years later, they added Ally’s
husband, Stephen West (el. Guitar), Joel Burkhead
(bass), and Ben Hodge (drums) to the Alanna Story
family. Combining incredible talents and more
importantly sincere hearts for worship, the band
creates a powerful, energetic atmosphere for others to encounter the presence of God. As God
faithfully continues to open doors and expand their territory both as original artists and as lead
worshippers, Alanna Story’s main pursuit remains: to love Jesus and lead others to the throne
room of God.

BREAKOUT SESSIONS
Breakout sessions are offered Saturday afternoon and allow you to choose topics and speakers
that interest you. They will each run one hour, with a 15-minute break between offerings, and they
correspond with the times for signup activities. Please sign up for breakout sessions so that we
can be sure we have enough chairs and handouts for all that attend.
TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE
Marilyn Mitchell and Sue Dahlmann
Marilyn and Sue have been friends for 22 years. They have been accountability partners for 10.
Come look at Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 and learn some basics about beginning a faith-based
accountability relationship with another sister in Christ. This friend will support you in your walk with
God yet help you keep a healthy balance in life. “If one falls down, her friend can help her up.”

THE WORD BECAME FLESH
Michael Perry
Looking at John 1:1, the Apostle introduces us to “the Word” & John the Baptist. We will dialogue
about who “the Word” was and why & “the Word” has had such a profound impact on our world?
Everyone needs to decide if they will believe, accept or just ignore this man we call Jesus. Walk
away with a fresh perspective on this well known scripture.

Heather will share God’s faithfulness through her journey of chronic illness and medical crisis. A
year ago, she was in a coma and her family was told she was dying. May her story encourage you

“shelters us with His wings”.

MAKE YOUSELVES AT HOME
Sharon Brown
Jesus has made our hearts His home. But have we made His heart our home? Do we rest in the
love of God, or do we root ourselves in lesser things? Come explore how to practice dwelling
deeply in the extravagant love of God and discover new ways of receiving, enjoying, and
responding to the presence of the One who calls you "beloved."

LOVE THEM WHILE YOU’VE GOT THEM
Eric and Amanda Woods
After spending six months living and working with their young family in an orphanage overseas,
Amanda and Eric came home to a startling realization: there were kids just like them here too. They
will share their story of how God led them from an orphanage in the third world to sharing love and
hope with orphaned and disadvantaged children right here in Michigan. This workshop will include
practical ways you and your church can support foster kids and foster families too… even if you
