If you didn’t know, I LOVE camp! And I especially love Sugar Creek Bible Camp. I grew up going to Sugar Creek for many years and then was a counselor for 4 years and have continued to visit and support camp as much as possible. But this is the first time I have spent the week at camp with campers from our congregation (other than my own children, of course!). And I am so excited!
There are few experiences that have been as formative to my faith as camp as been over the years. It has been a place where I have asked questions, struggled with doubt, been inspired, and experienced the holy. It has been all these things and more throughout my life. Although our Peace campers may not experience all of this in the next week, I pray that they will get a glimpse of all that God is doing in and through them. I pray they will make new friends and grow in relationship with established friendships. I pray they will know they are loved and valued just as they are because that is how God created them.
Please pray for our campers. And may God’s presence in their lives overflow in the coming week.
If you’re looking for me, I’ll be at camp,
