Summer of Stories

“So that the person who belongs to God can be equipped to do everything that is good.”
2Timothy 3:17

Our verse this summer comes from a letter from Paul warning Timothy about the evil in the world and the hard times that Timothy would inevitably face throughout his life. In this letter, Paul encourages Timothy to continue to follow what he knows is true. 

This summer we are going to be teaching our campers the parables that Jesus taught throughout the Bible. Each week we will focus on a different parable and learn ways to apply Jesus’s lessons to our own lives. We want to equip our campers with the knowledge of how we should live our lives so that we can spend eternity with Jesus in Heaven. Life is always going to throw difficult situations and circumstances our way and our hope is to provide our campers with a foundational knowledge of Christ which they can lean and depend upon throughout their lives. Therefore, we thought 2Timothy 3:17 verse was a perfect fit for our summer verse.

I am over the moon excited for Summer Camp 2015 to begin. We have an amazing staff who all come from different walks of life and will be able to share their life experiences and skills with our campers this summer. I look forward to seeing the counselors invest in the campers’ lives and seeing how God works in the lives of all who are a part of summer camp. 

We have so many things to look forward to this summer including swimming at the Ellwood City pool, park days, gymnastic lessons, rope course challenges, field trips, and community service projects.    As we partake on this year’s summer adventure, please continue to pray for our safety and that we are able to plant seeds of God’s truth in our campers!
