We had 5 of our Children and Youth attend Camp Gilmont Summer Camps in Gilmer this past week.
1 Youth attended Adventure Camp, which involves sleeping in treehouses every night and cooking most meals for themselves. Another youth attended Explorer Camp which is for ages 11 - 14, and three attended Discovery Camp for ages 7-10.
This year's theme was Fearless Faith:
The Courage to Show Up
The Courage to Trust
The Courage to Forgive
The Courage to Change
The Courage to Connect
"We believe that camp is one of the foundational experiences for a healthy faith."
A great time was had by all! Not only did they have a chance to be outside in beautiful East Texas, but they were able to connect with other campers they had met in previous summer camps. They were able to learn more about God, hear important stories from the Bible, and sing great worship and camp songs!
We are grateful to the church for supporting our children and youth by paying their way to summer camp! We believe that camp is one of the foundational experiences for a healthy faith. They will report to the church during worship on Sun., July 10th!
