Summer Camp Kick-off Meeting March 10th
March 3, 2011
Dear Friend/s of the Camp,
He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9: 36 & 37
When I read this scripture, I can’t help but think of our work at the camp. Isn’t that what we do every summer? Welcome children in the name of Jesus? What a privilege and a joy to know that as we welcome the kids to the camp this summer, we will be welcoming God as well.
Just before these verses, Jesus shares another important teaching with his disciples. “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.” This verse too captures what all of us who love LaMoine Christian Camp are committed to; being a servant of God to others.
The next few months are very important for us as we prepare the camp for the summer activities and commit ourselves to fulfilling various camp related responsibilities. On March 10th, we will hold our Summer Camp Kick-off meeting at the camp and the churches will receive all the information they need to promote camp and register their kids. Churches will also receive their spring cleaning projects, food barrel items, and kitchen help schedule. Please keep in close touch with your home church as to how you might serve the camp during this time and “Thank you” in advance for all you do for the ministry of LaMoine Christian Camp. We need you very much!
It is an exciting time of year as all the plans start coming together for the fast approaching camp season. We are so grateful that you are a part of the camp team. Thank you so much for your financial gift and your continual prayers!
