Whenever I'm afraid, I put my trust in You

Psalm 56:3

During each assembly session, Campers join first-time camp counselor Sam and Lu (short for Lumen), the lightening bug puppet, and learn to face their fears while trusting in God. Each day, Campers see Counselor Sam face new challenges, from as simple as leading Campers on a hike to as intimidating as meeting a new and wise nature expert. With the help of Lu the Lightning Bug and Camp Counselor Guidebook, Counselor Sam and our Campers explore timeless Bible stores that show how Old and New Testament Campers trusted God in the face of their own fears and went on to do great things in God's name.

Through these stories, this program will teach us about people in the Bible who experience the gift of a trusting relationship with God. In addition, it will teach us to trust that God will go with us, lead the way, share wisdom, to give us peace, and spark joy as we celebrate the good news of Jesus in our own lives and in the lives of others. We will also learn ways we can connect with and put our trust in God whenever we are afraid, challenged, or called to do God's work in the world and share the Good News of God's love through Jesus Christ.

Sunday School Students that are currently in Nursery 1- 5th grade are invited to attend. We encourage you to register your children by April 30th. All children in 6th grade - High School and adults are welcome to volunteer.
