Bible Studies

Today we talked about Nathaniel and Phillip. We discussed how they where the bean counter and bookworm! They were examples of "normal" people as disciples for Jesus Christ. They both responded very differently to Jesus! You can read about it here in John 1:43-50.

The costume crew as well as our backstage crew are working hard behind the scenes to pull all of the finishing details together as well. We're looking forward to seeing the final light and sound for the Performance from their crew too.
Last but never least, the Improv Video team has been seen all over camp doing all sorts of crazy things! We here at camp cannot wait to see their final cut.

Wednesday Morning Studies

This morning in bible study the campers focused on the Zealots. The focus was on Judas Iscariot and his betrayal of Jesus Christ. Some of our groups learned this story through a fun Facebook theme. Our campers liked and shared that message!
