Student Life Deadline

Filed under: LAUNCH,Student Life Camp,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 8:03 pm

28 teens have paid the $50 deposit for Student Life Camp!  If you still haven’t made your mind up you’ve 3 hours to turn in your deposit (please contact Theresa if its after 10:30 p.m.  She loves it when people call her late at night wanting to pay their deposit for youth camp.  I hope she doesn’t read this until after she gives me my paycheck in the morning.)  A couple of years ago I would have been dissappointed with having this number of teens attend summer camp, but my perspective have changed for several reasons:

  • Summer Camp just isn’t a big draw in Clinton.  Don’t believe me ask Kenny, Mark or Ken, the youth ministry guru.
  • We’ve got a ton of 1st timers going w/ us.
  • The group is almost evenly split between sr. high & jr. high.
  • God will move in the lives of the 28 teens and 5 or 6 adults who attend.
  • Summer Camp isn’t our outreach event (LAUNCH August 8-10 @ Twin Lakes, $100.00 is our summer/back to school outreach event).
  • We don’t have to worry about filling spots this year to cover our budget – allows me to sleep easier & not feel awful about waisting God’s $.
