Everything you need to know about WINTER CAMP!
We are so excited that you will be joining us this year for Winter Camp 2017! Below is all the information you should need to know about Hume Lake and what our weekend together will be like.
That's IT is this years theme. In a couple sentences in Mark 12:29-30, Jesus took the entirety of the 613 Levitical laws and beautifully pared them down to these two: Love God and Love Others. That is the great commandmentÖ plain and simple. In a world of increasing doubt and indecisiveness, what would it look like if we loved God with ALL of our hearts, souls, minds and strength? What if we loved our neighbors as much as we love ourselves? In the second half of verse 31 Jesus says ìThere is no other commandment greater than theseî and from that sentence comes our theme title: ìThatís it!î Itís as if Jesus was saying to the Scribe who approached him ìfocus on these, thatís it!î Our desire this winter is to learn how to love God and love others with ALL that we areÖ Thatís it!
Included in this letter you will find Hume Lake's winter camp packing list as well as their activities price sheet. Please take a look at those so you are prepared for camp.
