Last night in chapel, Nate talked about the topic “God saved.” He asked campers to think of a time that they felt really stuck or powerless, and told the story of getting his minivan stuck on an ATV trail. He then talked about how all humans are stuck in sin, and we need to be saved. We can trust in the Creator for eternal life. Jesus, who is the Creator (the wind and waves obeyed Him), cam to rescue us and show us God’s love. He came to live, serve, love, and die to cancel the debt of sin.
TAKE CAMP HOME: Ask your camper to tell you the story Nate told of the minivan stuck on the trail. Read Genesis 3:1-13 & John 1:1-4, 9-12, 14. Talk with your camper about some of the ways that we see the world being stuck in sin. What about in your own lives? Read some verses – Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, & 10:9. What is the message of these verses? What is the good news in response to Adam and Eve’s Fall?
Wednesday morning, campers went about their usual activities – polar dipping, breakfasting, cabin cleaning, and spending time alone with God. Then it was time for another morning chapel, followed by morning Free Time.
After Free Time, campers went to lunch – today’s meal was ham & cheese sandwiches, tater tots, salad, and apples for dessert. Campers went to watch another skit at the Steps of Faith after lunch, and to collect their Wednesday mail. Then it was again time for Clinics & Seminars before FREE TIME!
Today for Free Time, lots of campers hung out in the water or near the water, enjoying the pleasant breeze off of the lake. Still more campers headed up for their zipline or laser tag slots. At 4 o’clock, the Option was Ultimate on the North 40 Field. Campers who were into crafting could make washi tape or watercolor clocks in the Craft Room!
Then it was time for dinner, followed by chapel. Look for a chapel recap in tomorrow’s blog. After Chapel, campers will have some Cabin Time, where their counselor will plan a fun activity for the cabin to do together. After that, campers get some evening Free Time (with Canteen), before gearing up for a big Night Game! Tonight’s game is called Bible Smuggler!
TAKE CAMP HOME: What were some of the activities your camper did with their cabin throughout the week? Ask your camper about the Bible Smuggler game. What were the goals of the game, and what was their favorite part?
