We had smooth and safe travels to Skycroft on Monday, stopping at Chick-Fil-A and arriving at camp shortly after 1:00. All the campers (and Jackson!) went on the zip line; and some went on the water slide - no inclination to change into swim clothes when the opportunity presents!
After dinner we had the Opening Celebration and introduced campers to the main verse for the week: John 17:3 “This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and the one you have sent - Jesus Christ.” Campers had evening bible study with CentriKid staff and discussed what it means that God reveals himself and that we can know Him!
During church group time, we read the surrounding verses, John 17:1-5, focusing on verse 5: “Now, Father glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.” We connected Jesus’ unity with the Father before creation by linking what John says about Jesus in John 1:1 (In the beginning was the Word) and God speaking life into existence in Genesis 1.
