Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Reaching Out… For Camp?!


I know it kind of seems crazy, but we need to be thinking about Summer camp already.

Are you planning on going?

If not, why not? If so, you’re awesome.

Next question: Have you asked anyone else about going too? We prepare for camp a lot of ways: fund-raisers, preaching and activities are a few. If someone you know would like to come to camp and they don’t come to our church, perhaps camp is just the thing they need to be persuaded to start coming to church more faithfully.

We have people in our very own class that may or may not come to camp. You know who it might depend on? You. Wouldn’t it be cool if all they wanted was for someone to ask them? Maybe you could have an influence on others.

Are you others-focused? Camp is not all about you, although we often make it out to be. J Life is not all about you. The best parts in life are about others. If you can learn that now, your life will be that much better for it.

Think of others at all times, but specifically now in relation to camp. Maybe the only reason some people don’t want to go is because they don’t want to be alone all week. You have your friends. Now why don’t you go BE a friend like that to someone else.

It’s awkward. It’s new. It’s tough. It’s weird. Reaching out to others—especially if it means spending a whole week together in the same cabin—might seem strange. That’s okay. Try it. Be weird.

MONTH SHEETS – Please remember to fill out your sheet and turn it in at any time tonight. We will not be taking time in class, so please do it before or after if you would like your points to be counted. Tonight is the once-per-month “bonus” of an extra 500 points for attending any ONE week of door-knocking this whole month.


REQUIREMENT SHEETS – Even if you miss a Wednesday, please fill out a form and date it for the Wednesday that you missed. If you did the other requirements, we will still log those points. All you would miss is the 500 points for missing the Wednesday night meeting, but they can be made up by your one monthly sheet or by bringing a guest.


TOMORROW – We need help unloading 5 pallets tomorrow. If you can help me load/unload some new flooring for the gym, please let me know. It will probably be from 3:30-5pm or so.


CAMP REGISTRATION SUNDAY – March 10 (2 weeks away!) Please have your permission form and $50 registration fee ready on that day, and see if others you know can come too!


PICTURE/VIDEO SCAVENGER HUNT – Saturday, March 9, 12:30 – 3pm. Bring smartphones to email me photos/videos as you go. NEEDED: Drivers. Please bring chips or a snack to share.  Pizza and drinks will be provided.
