Here's another thought from camp to respond to. It is a paraphrase not an exact quote. The theme of the week was about discipleship and how that has to happen in the context of the fellowship of a local church. The camp pastor was talking about how it is one thing to build a church and another thing to make disciples. He said that there are more megachurches in America now than ever before, yet there are fewer people in church than there were [twenty] years ago. (I actually don't remember the exact time frame, but you get the gist.)
So what do you think about that?

The camp pastor at youth camp last week was Scott Venable. He is a pastor who planted a church in Chicago about three years ago (https://www.facebook.com/chicago.mosaic). In one of his messages he said this, "If you are not committed to your church then you are really not very committed to Jesus."
What do you think about that?

Wow, it is Wins-d nite already! Tonight we have some great Bible study for our adults. Our children will be playing on Water inflatables. Our youth will split the difference. The youth will have Bible study for the first 30 minutes, then play on the water inflatables (so wear stuff you can get wet if you want to do that).
