Last month, Real Life Church sent nine students, ages 13 to 17 years old, to Crossings Ministry camp at Jonathan Creek in Hardin, KY.
Each day, campers filled their days with worship gatherings, small group times, lake sports, zip lining, laser tag and a host of other camp activities.
“I personally loved the time we had with our kids from RLC,” RLC Camp Coordinator Natalie Perkins said. “I loved getting to talk to them about what they’d learned, how much fun they’d had that day, and how they were growing spiritually. The kids consistently said they loved our pastor and the nightly worship service, as well as lake sports. The camp also hosted a 50’s themed night after worship and Checkpoint one night, and the kids had a blast with that as well. They got all dressed up and played carnival games and danced.”
Natalie said a major highlight of the week was one student committing to a new relationship with Christ and two others recommitting their lives to Christ.
“All the students became so close and formed some amazing friendships,” Natalie said. “My two high school girls didn’t know any of the middle schoolers’ names when we left, and they had basically adopted them all as their children by the time we left. They also all seem to be so excited about coming to youth group now and really seem to be excited about growing in their relationship with God.”
