Luther Descendent at Camp Kinard!

 We invite you to join us on November 6, 2014, at Camp Kinard for "Laugh, Lunch & Learn" (formerly "Senior Adult Day") as we welcome Christian Priesmeier, a 13th generation grandson and direct descendent of Martin Luther and Katherine von Bora. A resident of Hamelin, Germany, Priesmeier also serves as Secretary of the genealogical society of documented Luther descendents, dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of Martin Luther. The day will also include devotions lead by Rev. Tommy Lineberger, lunch, crafts, hayrides, and s'mores around the campfire! To register, call the Camp Kinard office at (803) 532-2235 or click the link below. We look forward to seeing you there!
