A Word From Mike…

Acts 1.14     All these were constantly devoting themselves to prayer, together with certain women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, as well as his brothers.

This week I happened to see a Facebook video post from a church camp where I had been a    counselor.  As I watched the video, I realized that the young woman leading singing was a girl I had been a counselor to, when she was a camper.  Then, I saw that the person filming the singing was a young man who I had been a counselor to when he was a camper!  How exciting to see kids who have grown up in church camp, who valued the experience and who now give back, so others can share the same experience.

While the Acts verse above is about the church, church camp provides this in a unique setting, and with unique connections.  Those connections are found both with people and with God.  Camp is a week where day and night, the focused environment is constant devotion to God.  It is something we all could benefit from, and probably need to take seriously.

This week we are praying for our CYF campers, as we have prayed for our other campers this  summer.  My prayer for our church is that we all find those moments of unique devotion that comes from a constant devotion to God.

Thanks for sharing the journey,
Mike

‘Christmas in July’ is a special celebration that brings awareness to the Christmas for Others program that the Christian Churches of Midwest City, Midwest Boulevard, Del City and Nicoma Park participate in each year. Christmas for Others is the single largest Outreach activity that FCC is involved in for our community.

There will be an insert in this Sunday’s worship bulletin listing volunteer opportunities where YOU can get involved. There will also be a kettle for you to add your donation to so that we can begin our purchases for CFO.
