KIDS CAMP REPORT:
Well praise the Lord
for a great week at the Annual Association Kid's Camp. We had a
wonderful group of kids, counselors and leaders. Our Association
Children's Ministry Leader and Kid's Camp Director, Macee Wallace, did
an excellent job of planning and leading Camp. The children enjoyed a
fun-filled, action packed and spiritually productive week.
Justin Nelson, Associate Pastor at Taylorville
Baptist Church, was our Camp Pastor. He led us in morning and evening
worship times, sharing biblical truth from God's Word on a level the
children could understand. His wife, Valerie, led our worship music and
did an outstanding job.
I want to thank all those who served as Camp
Counselors. Churches all across our Association were represented. You
can not have a successful camp without good counselors and we had a
fantastic group. Thank you all for investing a few days in the life of a
child. God only knows how much this meant to some of these boys and
Of course, you can't have Kid's Camp without kids.
This was one of the best bunch of kids we have ever had. I think we set
a new record for 3rd graders.
Last but not least, I want to thank the parents
who entrusted us with their children for the week and the churches who
paid the way for so many of the kids to go and have this amazing
Yes, I went down Wet Willie (water slide) again
and IT WAS FUN! In fact, the whole week was fun and
fulfilling. Best of all, 9 young people gave their lives to Jesus.
Several of them have already followed the Lord in baptism in their local
church. Those nine children are worth it all!
THANK YOU to the churches who gave snacks and
money for snacks. You help us keep the cost down to a minimum. That is a
HUGE help and blessing.
We will start planning for Kid's Camp 2018 in
(January) five months. Yep, we start early so everything will be great
for the kids and counselors and pleasing to our Lord. We believe Camp
deserves our very best!
