Grace Adventures Prayer Partners
Dear Prayer Partners,
In a few weeks several thousand young people will descend onto our campus to attend summer camp. They will come for many different reasons; to have fun, to make new friends, to experience God’s creation and for many to encounter God in a new and fresh way.
Through the summer camp experience, Grace offers children a safe place away from the routine of daily life to meet new friends and explore new ideas while allowing for quiet time with God. The spiritual development of the campers is not left to chance at Grace. Efforts to reach, train and equip young people to be tomorrow’s leaders have been stepped up so they can impact their world one child, one family, one community at a time. We can’t wait to see how God changes lives and strengthens families.
Why is one week of camp so important? The power of camp is amazing. In a world full of distractions and busy lives the time young people spend in meaningful conversation with adults and families is being crowded out. Where do they get important information about life’s decisions? They get it from their friends, TV and the internet. Camp provides a place away from the daily distractions, where caring adults model what it means to love God and others. It is 10,080 minutes, one week’s worth of being unplugged from the negative influences of the world. It is a place where young people can learn to navigate the tough decisions of adolescence and discover their purpose and passion. It is a place where experiences live on from generation to generation.
As you pray for the items below please remember how many distractions young people have today. Please pray with us as campers come and begin to blossom in the Light of the Son! Pray for hearts open to the work the Holy Spirit wants to do; for transformed lives that will make an impact on the world; and for a deeper walk for those who have already experienced the saving power of Christ. Pray that we will hire the staff God wants to be at Grace and that they will daily submit to Christ and listen as the Holy Spirit directs. Pray for a successful Golf Fore Kids Event where we hope to raise $80,000 for program and activity sites. Pray for the scholarship fund which helps campers whose families have a financial hardship come to camp. Pray for the final preparations of the campus for summer ministry. Pray for an increase in the number of volunteers serving at Grace Adventures. Remember, one life touched by God can change the world. Thank you for joining with us to impact people with Jesus Christ!
In His Service,
