Kid’s Camp Day 2!

by Garrett Frey | July 13, 2021 7:25 PM

Day 2 of kid’s camp was a success! 

We taught some dances, played a game called "Electric," made gospel bracelets, and Justin shared the good news with chemistry! It was a blessing to see the kid’s engage with the gospel story and be encouraged to share it with someone in their lives!

Food Pantry Clean Up

After a delicious lunch grilled up by Mr. Knuckles himself, this afternoon we got to head over to Dr. Scott’s food pantry to help clean up some damage that was done by heavy rains over the last couple weeks. We replaced paneling and cleaned up some rooms, here’s a picture by the beautiful mural in the entryway!

Kid’s Camp Skits!

Today and yesterday for kid’s camp we provided skits of Bible stories like the Good Samaritan and David and Goliath for the kids! 

The students heard about the good news of Jesus Christ through these skits which was incredible to share with them.

It was an absolute joy to get to spend time with and love the kids at kid’s camp this week. It was hard to say goodbye, but we were grateful for the ways they impacted us as well as us getting to impact them.
