Summer Camp Equals:
great camp food (seriously)
whiffle ball in the amphitheater
7th graders being launched off the blog
Late Nights and Early Mornings
Trinity dominating in the tournaments! (volleyball, dodgeball and ping pong winners)
Slowing down enough to recognize God speaking to us
sitting in a circle and boosting one another
Students submitting their entire lives to Jesus
Worshipping with a great leader and experiencing God
Summer camp is an unbelievable opportunity to spend time together and to refocus on God. Already looking forward to camp next summer!

We celebrated in our morning worship service those who were graduating this year. We have an unbelievable group of seniors this year. Many of them understand what it means to be a servant leader and I am looking forward to what God has in store for each of them. From left to right are: Michelle Hall, Stephanie Meinert, Sarah Billington, Aaron Wood, Leah Romine, Kelsey Wright, Justin Bronder, Justin Workman, Travis Mayes and Shea Powers. Not pictured: Jordan Mills, Shelby Moss, Morgan Mueller, Mike Bierce, Donald Gibson, Derrick Marrs and Kelsey Brocaille. Congrats to all of them!
This weekend I went to the Kimmswick Strawberry Festival with my family and some friends. We were anticipating everything strawberry: strawberry tea, strawberry shortcake, strawberry cheesecake, etc. We arrive at the festival and are greeted by 40 - 50 tents...with only one having anything strawberry related! A restaurant had a few strawberry desserts, but that is it. Kinda of disappointing.
In transforming churches, by Kevin Ford, he says this,
"Incongruence-the disconnection between what we say and what we do-is commonplace, almost expected, in our culture."
I wonder if we say we offer something as a church...but then don't come through on it.
I wonder if I say one thing about life...but then live my life another way.
Scott made the statement today in the morning service, that we are "Practical Atheist." We say we believe in God but then our lives do not reflect it.
I am evaluating my life and making sure that my actions match my words...I don't want there to ever be a disconnection between the two.
