Summer Camp is Officially Kicked Off

By June 5, 2009Uncategorized

It’s Summer….

That means 3 speakers on the road, 23 events to attend and major Wayfarer ministry opportunities.  We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all the guys and their travel schedules.

Yesterday Chad left SC to head to Shocco Springs, AL to kick off his first camp of the summer with our friends at Student Life.  You can listen tonight and tomorrow night by here.

Here is a sneak peak at his first night of camp from last night.

Tonight was the first night of worship at Student Life camp. All Things to All People, the Student Life drama team, opened the service and performed the first in a series of skits that presented the camp theme, FLIP, along with providing real life situations that students can identify with. In the drama, three high school characters gathered at lunch. A scene was portrayed with a new Christian girl coming to sit at a lunch table with an overly friendly high school boy and his friend who hates Christians and wants nothing to do with the new student.
    Next, Josh Hilliker lead students in a time of worship. Hilliker taught students a few new songs and helped them focus so they would be ready to hear about God’s plan for their lives.
    All Things to All People took the stage once again to continue their series of skits. One of the characters became a Christian while the other became upset when she found out. He displayed drastic changes in his life, while she was terrified he would leave her because she is not a believer. Students are looking forward to the continuation of the drama tomorrow night.
    Chad Norris asked all adult leaders and students who were in pain and looking for God’s healing to come to the front so they could be prayed over. He began the message with Hosea 4:6 and spoke to students about the importance of knowledge. Norris told students that Jesus is not looking for them to believe in him, but for them to accept his forgiveness and grace and then boldly walk into his throne room. Then Norris lead students to Luke chapter 24 and Jesus on the road to Emmaus. He spoke about living at peace with Jesus and challenged students to not only believe in him, but to truly accept his love for them. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. 
    Finally, Josh Hilliker closed the service in a time of worship where students could reflect on Norris’ words and changes they would like to make in their lives.'
