Thanks everyone for a wonderful week! It was my pleasure to step WAY out of my comfort zone (Hometown Children’s Pastoring) and wear a “Kids Evangelist” cap for a while. I saw God do amazing things with your kids! Forever kind of stuff!
Below are a few resources that I used in the services this week. I hope you will find them helpful.

UPDATE – Camp Notes
By request: Below are the Victory Verses, Main Points and Big Deals from each night of camp. Each night’s topic goes back to what you need to become a “Camp Champ” aka a champion in your walk with Christ.
Night 1 – You Need Jesus
- Main Point: Jesus is the way to God. He’s the truth about God. He’s the only way to eternal life beyond and a joyous life now.
- Victory Verse: John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life… “Without me, no one can go to the Father.
- Big Deal: Separated from God because of sin but Jesus can bring me back again.
Night 2 – You Need Power
- Main Point: Do you have the power of the Holy Spirit living in and around you? Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control. Do those describe you?
- Victory Verse: You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses… Acts 1:8
- Big Deal: I need the Power and the Fruit of the Holy Spirit! Cause people wanna see it before they hear it!
Night 3 – You Need To Represent Your Team (Are you Super-Normal?)
- Main Point: The world’s normal isn’t our normal. We are to live as sacrifices to God… that’s the norm for Christians.
- Victory Verse: Offer your bodies to him as a living sacrifice, pure and pleasing. That’s the most sensible way to serve God. Romans 12:1
- Big Deal: I’m set apart I’m on God’s Team that’s what Super-Normal means!
Night 4 – You Need A Goal
- Main Point: What is God calling you to do? Whatever it is, you can’t reach it without Him and Us. A God sized dream is bigger than you can ever ask for, think of or do on your own.
- Victory Verse: I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
- Big Deal: I may not know what He wants me to do but it’s going to require both Him and You!
