We will be clearing brush, trimming hedges, painting, and or-
ganizing storage areas. So grab your weed eaters, chainsaws,
gloves, tree cutters, and hedge clippers and come on out!
If you need to spend the night Friday or Saturday at camp you
can also do that for free in the Dorms as we have a group in the
Lodge. There are some good restaurants in town you can check
out for dinner and breakfast. You can pay for the breakfast we
are providing for the group in the Lodge.

Christian Education

Education is not indoctrination, but teaching people how to practice what it means to be a Christian.

Usually we think of education this way: hear a story and remember the facts. Christian education today begins with someone telling a Bible story and then asking powerful questions. Can we love as Jesus loved? Does God ask me to be obedient like Abram and Sarai? Are we called to feed Christ’s sheep? If so, what does this mean for us? The model of teaching is Jesus’ model, but Jesus also taught while he healed the sick or as he moved away from the crowd to pray. We learn through his example and by our own experience.

Christian education in its best form focuses on the result. Churches help individuals know what it means to be a Christian, guide people to tell God’s story in relation to their own story, and prepare members to hear God’s call to go and serve. Congregations help learners hunger for faith-filled conversations around Scripture and lives of faithful action.
