Hey parents! Welcome to the New Frontiers blog!
It’s a really nice day here in Evart, MI! It’s 73 degrees Fahrenheit and is mostly sunny, with some cloud coverage. It’s beautiful! Today, your campers made flags representing each of their cabin groups during Competition time. Each cabin group started with only a blank white flag and black paint. In order to get glitter, colored paint, and other materials to make their flags, they competed in several mini-games around the soccer field. The games included rock-paper-scissors, dizzy stick, riddles, finger sword-fighting, an obstacle course, and throwing tennis balls in a bowl hat.
They also have been enjoying various, fun activities throughout the day. Some guys were really impressive at the skatepark. Other campers had a blast at the play barge, swimming and going down the water zipline. And another group was playing a game of six square during their free time!
Here are some pictures of these activities:
Today during focus, your campers learned about Onesimus, the runaway slave once owned by Philemon, and the story of how he met Paul and became a Christ follower. Paul pleads with Philemon to accept Onesimus back as a brother in Christ rather than as a disobedient slave. Along with this story comes the lesson of how we can also, like Onesimus, know God in a personal way rather than as an impersonal, distant God. Pray that your campers would begin to see God in this light during this week at camp.
Along with this prayer request, you can also lift up the following in prayer:
Wisdom and knowledge for counselors as they teach lessons Smooth programming The Holy Spirit’s presence during worship and play Unity in cabin groups Campers to grow in their relationship with Christ Injury prevention
