Pyro 2 is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. As we’ve done before, we are reaching out to ask the church to cover us in prayer. In fact this year, we have two very specific requests if you are willing.
Would you consider being a Prayer Partner? We’re hoping that every day of camp, August 6th-11th, would be covered in prayer. 1 Thessalonians 5 advises us to “pray continually” so we encourage you to pray 3 times on these days.
In the morning – to prepare our hearts, minds and bodies for the day ahead.
In the afternoon – for safety and fun during activities, also for new friendships to be formed and campers to create sacred memories.
In the evening – for club, the worship band led by Mark Hunter, our speaker Daniel Harrell and the cabin time discussions that follow.
Maybe you need to make a note in your calendar to remember. Maybe you need to put a post it on the fridge. Maybe you need to set an alarm on your phone, whatever you need to do, please remember us in prayer.
We’re also asking for one more thing. Every day we have a counselor meeting where we check in with the counselors – our team of 30+ high school and college students who lead these campers all week. We cover the details of the day, share highlights and great stories as well as how we’ve seen our co-counselors rise above and beyond each day. I also share a short devotional or word of encouragement.
This year I would love to share with them your prayers or words of encouragement. Would you consider writing a quick note to the counselors that I can share with them each day? Maybe a prayer, maybe a devotional, maybe a joke, maybe just words of encouragement, whatever you think might inspire this team of leaders and remind them how their church is supporting them as they support their campers.
If you would like to participate please either email me at email@example.com or drop a written note off in my mailbox at church.
If you are able to participate, THANK YOU. This church has an incredible legacy of believing in the power of summer camp, partially due to the fact that many of you have experienced it yourself! Thank you for continuing this legacy for another 150 middle school campers. We are ready to see what this week has in store and how God will move.
