Family Camp 2017

In 2016 we celebrated 75 years of ministry and our theme was "Remember God's Faithfulness. Press on in God's Promises". Each week we focused on one of God's many promises. For Family Camp 2017 we want to shift our focus to "Living God's Way - Exploring God's Blessings". Many of the staff are reading Kyle Idelman's book, "The End of Me - Where Real Life in the Upside-Down Ways of Jesus Begins". "He breaks his book into two parts and lays out in detail how walking with Jesus  to the end of oneself is the beginning, middle, and end of finding the real life of abundance as described in the Beatitudes"...quoted from Publisher's Weekly about the book.

As you drive through the gates onto the grounds, we encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the words on the lamp post banners (used by permission of Kyle Idleman):

  1. Broken to be Whole
  2. Mourn to be Happy
  3. Humbled to be Exalted
  4. Authentic to be Accepted
  5. Empty to be Filled
  6. Helpless to be Empowered
  7. Disqualified to be Chosen
  8. Weak to be Strong
  9. The End of Me

Kyle Idleman posted this statement on Facebook and asked people to finish it: "Jesus became real to me when..." What would your response be?

Whichever week or weeks you are joining us may the theme for that week provide the thoughts for you to reFresh, reFocus and reConnect during your time with us.

We look forward to seeing you at Fair Havens this summer...where happy memories are made!
