March is just around the corner (March 1 registration), and before we know it we’ll be loading up the bus to head to the desert this summer… Camp Ironwood!
For many, summer camp has been the most pivotal and life-changing spiritual event in their lives… for ME it was! God used that one week every year in my life to break out the bad and build up the good, and He has done the same for countless lives for as long as I’ve been around (I’d suspect He was working before then, too!) Our preacher this year is the man who is preaching the 2011 Preaching Rally: Bryan Samms. He is on staff at West Coast Baptist College, and has been involved in teens’ and college people’s lives for many years. With morning and evening preaching sessions, a dedicated staff of camp counselors and helpers who love the campers, and a great environment in which the Lord can freely move, our young people will ONLY be helped by attending.
I hope this is the biggest part of everyone’s year. “Well,” someone might say, “…we might be going out of town that weekend.” If your other dates aren’t set yet, PLEASE make priority for camp! “Well, I’m not sure if we’ll have the money.” PLEASE let us know if you don’t have the money, and we will do all we can to get your teen involved in soul winning, working at the church, fundraisers, and other ways by which they will be able to attend. Please do not let money be the determining factor!
Lots of excuses might come up, but we want to be aware of as much as we can so that we can see your child attend camp. If you have any questions about Jr. High or Senior High camp, please see me or my wife. Questions about the Jr. Camp (Grades 4-6 in Fall 2011) can be directed to my mom, Wendy Rench.
