Curt Decker and I took 6, 3rd - 5th graders to Disciple Crossing in Athens, Texas for the first time this past weekend. Disciples Crossing is the church's summer campsite.
First of all, a HUGE thank you to Curt for sacrificing his time to help out with the campers!
Second of all, camp is not for everyone, but each of the six kids that we took said, "We get to do this again this summer?!" They loved it! We had dance parties, worship, small group rotations that taught us how scripture fits into our lives, we hiked, we biked, we created, and we even wrote and acted in our very own play. There was just no time for sleep.
What is it about church camp that the kids love so much? I'm not sure, but I think it has something to do with the live connection they feel between God and self. Or maybe it's just fun to be away from home for the weekend. Whatever it is, thank you for your support in sending our children to camp. It truly has the potential to change lives.
There is an opportunity for ages 3-20 to participate in camp at Disciple Crossing this summer. Please contact me or Robert for more information!
Adopt a Roo
We no longer will collect food items for the Roo Pouch ministry for Hall Middle School. We now have the opportunity to "Adopt a Roo"!
It is only $6 a week to provide a kiddo healthy food to get them through the weekend. Instead of going out to lunch or dinner, we can write a $30-35 check (once a month) to this ministry to ensure that a youth from Hall Middle School does not go hungry over the weekend.
Tarrant Area Food Bank will provide the items prepackaged. We will need volunteers to help make bi-weekly or monthly runs to Ft Worth for the pre-made pouches. We will also need back-up volunteers to help deliver the pouches to Hall when Lisa Martin is unable to drop them off.
If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Martin
