Discovery Time

Today at Discovery Time campers learned that the Bible shows them the way to Live. The story from Acts 27: 1-44 talks about Paul standing firm in his faith during a shipwreck.

The Bible verse today is “If you love me, you will keep my commands.” John 14:15


Today campers had french toast sticks, sausage, and hash browns.



Tonight at Vespers Jodi talked to the campers about how much Jesus loved each and every one of them. Campers were given the opportunity to ask Jesus to be their best friends. Jodi also talked about what to do if Jesus already was their best friend. She said they need to GROW.

Message from the Director

Discovery Time

Discovery Time at camp is where the campers learn the morning lesson and enjoy worship time.
Today during worship, the campers sang:
- Every Move I Make - Jesus Cheer - Big House
The Bible verse for today comes from John 13:34, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” The theme for today is “The Bible Shows Me The Way To Love”. Jodi told the campers about 5 different kinds of love and different ways we can love one another.
### Breakfast

Today for breakfast, the campers had pancakes and sausages. After breakfast, the all-camp photo was taken, followed by time to clean cabins.



Vesper Hill is a sacred place at Camp Lakewood where the campers have a time to hear a story and have one on-one-time with God. Today the Bible story comes from Matthew 14: 22-33. Jesus walks on water to the disciples and tells Peter to join him. Peter is walking on the water with Jesus, but when he takes his eyes off of Jesus, he starts to sink. Tonight’s theme is “The Bible Shows Me The Way To Trust.”
