We’ve been warmly welcomed by an enthusiastic staff here at Crosswoods. We’re having a lot of first time experiences as we settle in to camp life. Our youth have been learning new songs, getting to know the staff and our group, and testing their skills at archery tag and the low ropes course. It’s a small group of youth at camp this week, so we have a lot of time to develop deeper relationships with our own youth.
The theme for this week is Fighting the Good Fight of Faith. We’re starting to learn that this doesn’t mean what we initially thought. Faith in Jesus means following his ways of showing God’s care for those who others turn away from, and sticking up for our faith when others challenge the way Jesus lived.
We’ll be doing lots of other things that will stretch our bodies, minds, and spirits this week. Thank you to all who have helped provide this experience for our middle schoolers to grow in their walk with Jesus.
