Yesterday was a packed day at camp, with activities tied back to Biblical truths and study focused on our God who “reveals the way.” Campers studied John 14:6 where Jesus tells Thomas that He is the way the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him. In the worship service, campers read 1 Corinthians 9:5-6 where Paul writes that “there is but one God, the Father from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one lord, Jesus Christ, by who are all things, and we exist through Him.” Camp Pastor Jacob shared that when you are walking in the Way, (1) people see Jesus in you, (2) you see Jesus at work in and around you, and (3) you join Jesus in His work.
During church group time in the evening, Pastor Eric expanded on the day’s discussion of God revealing the way, by telling our kids that in the early days of the church, followers of Jesus were referred to as those belonging to “the Way” (Acts 9:2). When Jesus proclaims that He is the Way in John 14:6, He is declaring that He is the fulfillment of the law, and He is the path that leads to the blessed life referred to in Psalm 1:1-3 and Deuteronomy 5:32-33.
Day 4 will be an amazing day with the Skycroft carnival during HangTime, our SRBC kids playing bazooka ball together, and the end-of-camp game - Organized Mass Chaos (OMC) - being added to our regular schedule of activities, worship and Bible study.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s recap of Day 4, which will hopefully be posted before we arrive home from Camp!
