COME ENJOY A WEEK OF FUN AT GALILEE BIBLE CAMP!
Summer Camp at Camp Galilee is an experience that stays with you for the rest of your life. From the fellowship to the almost unending list of activities, the week is filled with non stop fun and friendship. Most importantly it is a time for our youth to be able to learn about and connect with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Our main focus is teaching campers the importance of a relationship with Jesus Christ. All campers will get to experience contemporary worship styles with fun and engaging Bible songs, dynamic speakers, close-knit small groups, quiet time, scripture memory, and competitive quizzing.
All overnight camps utilize the resources of Norris Lake, offering swimming, water slide, water trampoline, canoeing, kayaking and paddle boats. Campers also get to participate in archery, air-soft guns, a traversing wall and many other games and activities.

Have you heard about the Caring Neighbors program at LaFollette Utilities? According to lub.org, Caring Neighbors is a program sponsored by LaFollette Utilities to help customers who are less fortunate pay their utility bills. Funds for the program come from voluntary contributions made by customers each month or as a one-time donation. It is an emergency assistance fund. It is not intended to be an ongoing source of extra income, but a temporary help to be used for paying utility bills.
LaFollette Utilities collects the funds and an independent Board of Directors certifies the eligibility of the recipients and disburses the funds, all of which goes directly toward helping less fortunate residential customers.
Who Receives Help?
Those eligible to receive help through Caring Neighbors are those on limited, fixed incomes; the handicapped; the medically disabled; and those not currently economically self-sufficient. The number of persons who can be helped depends on how much the rest of us are willing to give.
How do I join?
You can donate $1, $2, or more each month, conveniently added to your utility bill. Or, you can make a one-time donation.
Find out more information and fill out a Caring Neighbor application by clicking (here) and visiting LUB’s website. Thank you, LaFollette Utilities, for being a Chamber Partner in 2018!
