Tonight was our final night of worship here at Camp Lakewood, and as a chance of pace, worship occurred at beautiful frontier land. Campers were given the chance to commit to following Jesus Christ, and many campers are ready to do so! Director Sheri talked about how having God in your life makes it incredibly better, and having Jesus as your best friend makes any difficult task achievable! Cabins broke off into their own groups, and the councilors were able to pray for their campers, and answer any possible questions about Jesus that might have existed. After campers sang "Father I Adore You", and "Sanctuary", they were dismissed to their cabins where they will have devotions before bedtime. It was an amazing week of worship, and it is quite evident that many valuable lessons have been taught and learned!

He talked about how trusting in God and realizing his love brings on endless possibilities. Being able to come to terms with the knowledge of his love ultimately brings upon true happiness and content. If the campers learned nothing else this week at camp, Pastor Curtis said that he hopes they learn that God loves each and every one of them, and he is with them in every situation that they may face. Like David defeated Goliath with God on his side, campers too are able to accomplish tremendous feats alongside God!

All of our campers appear as though they are truly ready to trust in God! ###Organized Mass Chaos! Tonight's evening extravaganza was the new game "Organized Mass Chaos", or OMC for short.

Tonight's lesson during worship focused on the concept of Godly plans. No matter how young or small you may be, God has big plans for you! Just like God had a big plan for David, he has big plans for all of us. The key part of the lesson is always trying to listen to God's call. Often times we may want to do something that doesn't exactly align with his plans, and the important thing to do, is always try your best to fulfill his word! It can often times be challenging, but the end result is living a life of Christ, and by doing that, one can find eternal joy! The service concluded with another rendition of "Sanctuary". These campers are definitely beginning to understand God on a whole new level!

Cabin Competitions
