This summer, the Glorieta Camps theme is "Wanted: Dead or Alive"
This summer we will enter into our third year (out of seven) of walking through the Bible. What lies ahead of us is a lot of history...which means a lot of names and a lot of events we can't possibly cover in a 7-day time span. We get that.
Our desire, however, is to move students through Scripture in a way that continually points back to Jesus. This particular summer, you will see themes of death and life woven throughout the books, the stories, the people and how our own lives can relate to that. Especially as we consider our life without Christ and our life with Christ.
We will ask students to examine their own hearts. We will ask them to consider giving up things. We will ask them evaluate if they are dead or alive. We will discuss a life of obedience and the importance of it and we will contrast it to the satisfaction that is or isn't found in disobedience.
We will study.
We will share.
We will ask for openness and vulnerability as we, yet again, see how the text relates to us personally. We will seek to understand the Word in context and we will push students to look for connections of how it always ties back into the bigger story of Jesus Christ and our need for redemption.
We're praying, as always, that this summer would bring true life to all. That we would be revived as we remember the God who is faithful in bringing His children back to Himself.
The truth is that we are wanted, no matter where we are at or what we have done, despite our brokenness or our seeming wholeness. We're excited to reveal that truth to you as we dig through Judges all the way through Song of Solomon, too.
Let the Gospel change your group's life.
