A Note from Camp!
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” - Ephesians 3:20
I’m writing this to you from in front of The Refuge, the beautiful dining and multipurpose building at Pine Springs Camp in Jennerstown, PA. I’m again, grateful for the opportunity to be here, serving our youth and so many others as we’re committed to providing them with vital encounters with Jesus. This week was nearly full with 130+ campers including a camp for Grandmas, Moms & Tots, early elementary, late elementary and middle school. Bridgette and I are leaving the middle school camp and it’s been a blast!
One of my favorite parts of camp this week is the window on the generations who’ve been impacted for Jesus by this camp. Seeing grandmothers with their grandkids, hearing testimonies of staff about their own parents bringing them here, and hearing campers make plans for when they will grow up and serve has been awesome!
We’ve actually heard a couple of testimonies about the impact of this camp and the staff and volunteers who serve here, being a lifeline in the middle of doubts, struggles and heartaches. Praise God!
And I want to remind you… every time you financially support Canonsburg UP Church, you’re also supporting the ministry of Pine Springs Camp! You’re also enabling us to provide vital encounters with Jesus to kids and families in Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Wisconsin and… there was even a family here who lives in Kuwait!
Your impact for God’s kingdom is much greater and far reaching than you know!
Thank you for being part of this ministry, even if you’ve never been to camp! Thank you for loving kids, even if you’ve never seen their smiling faces around a campfire. Thank you for helping to provide vital encounters with Jesus, even if you’ve never led a devotional, a praise song or a cabin time. By being a part of our team at Canonsburg UP, you’re having an impact in the lives of these kids and the waves are rippling wider than you’d imagine!
Welcoming people to Grow in Jesus, at home and a camp!
