Teen Camp 2012: UNASHAMED
Do you know the one thing that really bothers Jesus--that makes him want to vomit? Lukewarmness. He just can't handle it when his followers are partially committed, partially interested, or partially obedient. It makes him sick to his stomach--like hot coffee that sat too long on the counter or a cold soda that was left in the car on a summer day. Yet, even though most of us know the scripture that says "because you are lukewarm...I will spit you out of my mouth," we still do it (Rev. 3.16).
Maybe the problem is we are ashamed of our faith. Would you be embarrassed if your friends found out that you are a Christ-follower? Are you afraid to let everyone know that you love God? Would you like to build your confidence and strengthen your identity as a child of God? If so, then you should come to teen camp this year.
Our theme is unashamed and we will be learning, discussing, and thinking about how we can kick our faith into the next gear. Our aim is to be proud of our God, unashamed of his Son, and confident to seek first his kingdom and righteousness. In short we want to be like the apostle Paul who said:
For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.
--2 Timothy 1.12
Besides focusing on being unashamed by listening to teachings and participating in small groups, you will also be able to go swimming in Lake George, play all kinds of sports, and hang out with other Christian teens. Sign up today!
