Back at Camp!

2016-Teen 2 Week 4-0508Last week, we went with our home church to summer camp! It was wonderful to return to our old stomping grounds and see our friends at Commonground Baptist Camp.  In some ways, things haven’t changed. It’s still a place where teens can hear solid preaching and make monumental decisions for Christ. What has changed is the campers themselves. We don’t know this new group of young people; they were so young when we left 4 years ago. Now, they are the teenagers, the future of our churches! In these last days, we need them more than ever.  Praise the Lord, God is still using camp to reach teens and change lives. Camp meant so much to me as a young man and it is so good to see it help others too!

This was our biggest year of camp ever! We had 264 campers in attendance and 7 of those teenagers were saved!  God worked in hearts and many teens made tremendous decisions for Christ. Throughout the week, we heard messages on forgiveness, bitterness, and fighting the good fight of faith.  We are so thankful for the camp ministry and all the people who worked behind the scenes to make it happen. 44 people from our church staffed at camp this year! What a blessing to see our church family come together to serve Christ.  But our job is far from over…please continue to pray for us as we strive to work with these young people. Pray that that we would see teenagers take a stand against sin and grow in their walk with Christ.

Camp is just 1 week away! We are so blessed to have church people that want to get involved!  Without our small army of workers, summer camp would be impossible!  We have teens spending their summer break decorating and singing in the choir and adults taking vacation days to work in the kitchen. Please pray for our teens! Camp is fun, but we want this week to be a time for people to get serious about the Lord.  Thank you and please enjoy the slideshow!

Space CampWe want to thank the Lord for another awesome week of camp! The theme was “Blast off to a Bright Future!” This year we had 200 campers present and 16 of those teens trusted in Christ as their Savior! Throughout the week, teens were encouraged to make wise choices today so they could have a bright future tomorrow!  Please pray that these young people would remember their decisions and continue to grow in Christ! Another huge blessing during camp were all the adults that volunteered to help. 85 people came from our church to help cook, clean, and serve! Many of these people work and used their vacation time just to be with us! That is a BIG sacrifice and to see them happily volunteer just blessed our hearts. We are so thankful to serve in the Philippines with this great group of people!
