Weekend Teaching Series: Best Year Ever: STORIES: Summer Camp edition (1-off)
Sermon in a Sentence: God is all about changing lives, be transformed here every week and once a year up at summer camp.
Service Length: 67 minutes

Understandable Message: This weekend we kicked off our registration for summer camp with a Stories weekend. A Stories weekend is when we don’t have a “message” in the typical format, but allow students to share their stories with the entire group. Without a doubt, it is one of the most powerful messages we give every year, too! The students worked hard to prepare their story as well as had someone from our student ministry read through it with them and their parents signed off as well.

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: This week we had a fun game called Egg Roulette as well as a strong video near the front of the program. We also played last year’s summer camp highlight video which was powerful and also brought back a ton of good memories from last year. Tons of students involved, great volunteers and a really fun, clean program.

Music Playlist: Alive, Oceans, Let It Be Known, He Is Alive

Favorite Moment: So many great moments – my favorite for sure being when Justin cut his head open playing Egg Roulette. Simple, fun game that apparently is near lethal, too. Hahhaahah … just glad he didn’t get a concussion. In all seriousness, my favorite moment is for sure when a student gathers up the courage to share. SO powerful, the story of a changed life!
