We all made it home safe from a wonderful week at camp. Camp was truly a blessing to everyone who was able to be present this past week. It was great to really connect with some of the teens from here and the surrounding area. This past week our theme was Basic Training and we focused on some of what we might call, the basics of Christian living. Something that resonated with me from the week is that we were all created to glorify God in every way and one of the ways to participate in that is to "do life together."
We spent a lot of time together this past week having fun, playing games and just sitting and talking. These are all great tools for us to get to know each other on a personal level and to become a part of people's lives, so in turn we "do life together." We were created in community and that is the way we must continue to live.
It was a beautiful day to get some much needed work accomplished around the church campus. Several showed up, both women and men, with some awesome power tools and strong backs. The entire property got a very nice facelift. A huge thank you for all who gave of their time and energy this morning. Tell Doyle Taylor how good it looks. I know he could use the encouragement.
