The pre-Church Camp post may have sounded a little bit excited about Church Campâ€¦ but 4 days of fun, fellowship, and good Bible teaching did not disappoint!
Brodie, Jon, and Matt – the FBC team – with the help of 5 African Bible College students, ran a 3-ring circus for us: teaching for the adults, a kidsâ€™ program, and even a nursery.
The adults studied Romans chapters 4,5,6, & 8 over the 4 teaching sessions.Â We looked at how we, as believers, are to live out the gospel in our every day lives, and how Christâ€™s resurrection confirms that gospel work in our lives.
The tie-in between the resurrection and our sanctification was fantastic, as our camp was over Easter weekend.Â A few early risers gathered for a sunrise service and we enjoyed the chance to sing praises to our risen Savior!
The kids learned about Bibliology – all about the Bible.Â They came back from their sessions quoting Bible verses, singing silly songs, showing everyone their crafts, and acting just likeâ€¦ well, just like theyâ€™d been to camp!Â Iâ€™m pretty sure most of them would have voted to stay at camp for weeks!
The adults enjoyed a few games too.
Our location was great for walks and game drives, so groups would go out during free time to see sable, zebra, giraffeâ€¦ some of which came to camp to visit us! Â Other people would collect at one camp site or another for coffee, long chats, or a pick-up volleyball game.Â It was a great time of getting to know one another better!
One of our great hopes for International Bible Fellowship Church is that we would become a church family, and that our fellowship would be genuine, Christ-centered, and welcoming to others.Â This camp was one of those times, and weâ€™re eagerly looking forward to next time!
