If you came to camp, you know that our theme verse was Psalm 130:7, which says, “Israel, put your hope in the Lord. For there is faithful love with the Lord, and with Him is redemption in abundance.”
Together, we learned that God provided a plan to redeem His people since the beginning of time. He reaches down to redeem us, even when we are helpless. In the same way that God rescued the Israelites from captivity in Egypt, God rescues us from the captivity of our sin. God’s redeeming work was completed through the perfect life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and because Jesus is still alive today, we can trust Him to reconcile us to the Father. God restores His children for a purpose, and He reaches out through us as we seek to share with others about the redeeming work of Christ.
We hope that these truths continue to circulate through the minds and hearts of campers from summer 2014. Throughout camp, hundreds of participants made salvation decisions and milestone decisions to follow Jesus more closely. We are so humbled by the way that God continues to work through the ministry of camp, and we invite you to celebrate with us as we reflect on all the things God did during the summer of 2014. For a full report, check out our Ministry Results Page on the CentriKid Camps website.
We are already well underway for CentriKid 2015, and we hope that you’ll join us as we explore our theme — FIT: Faith in Training! Be sure to check out centrikid.com regularly for more exciting updates about camp!
