New Summer Bible Study
Why would God, who knows everything, ask human beings anything? To confront people with His grace and His holiness, to communicate with humanity and to invite people to be honest with Him and themselves. We see this in the questions he asks Adam and Eve, Joshua, Ezekiel and more. These are not just questions he asked, but questions we are to ask ourselves and consider now. Knowing the challenges of summer schedules, we have designed this to be a week-to-week study – perfect to do through the summer when life gets less predictable. Each Wednesday from 6:30 – 7:30pm (note the change in time!)

What you need to know about Camp L.I.T?
*** Camp L.I.T. consists of 4-day gender camps for ages 12-15, a mentorship program, monthly and quarterly events for the teens to engage with their foster peers (not necessarily the same ones who come to camp).
*** Camp L.I.T. is structured differently, allowing us to hold more camps and serve more campers per camp.
*** Camp L.I.T is a faith-based organization and wants God to get all the Glory for any transformation these teens experience. We offer a character study from the Bible, journaling, which includes an applicable bible verse the campers are encouraged to memorize and receive recognition for doing so. Each camper is given the opportunity to pray at meals and at other times throughout camp. Because these foster teens are considered wards of the state, we cannot proselytize, give an altarcall, lay on of hands, baptize or sprinkle. However, we weave the theme of the bible character study in every activity we do, keeping talk of God’s grace and mercy top of mind, so if the camper asks questions about Jesus Christ, then we take that opportunity to share the gospel.
*** Camp L.I.T.’s goal this summer is to host 48 campers, 24 per gender in 2 camps. The cost to house, feed, provide a Teen Bible, transportation, t-shirts, toiletries, sling backpacks, arts and crafts supplies, board and card games, canoeing, music, archery, challenge course facilitation, swimming, paint ball, gaga ball, name badges, lanyards, awards, refillable personal water bottles, extra bedding (sleeping bags or sheet sets, pillows and blankets), printing of journals, schedules, volunteer training materials, bug spray, first aid items, sunscreen, photo albums, photo printing and miscellaneous items campers may forget to bring, lodging and meals for 32 volunteers per camp is $30,000. That cost is $625 per camper.
*** Volunteers must be 21 years or older and complete the 8 hour training. Next training is on Saturday, June 5th. To sign up for the training, contact Kim or Ginger Vass.
