Sign-Ups for Summer Camp Begin This Sunday!

This summer, Riptide is going to Thousand Pine Christian Camp June 21st-26th.

The theme this year is called Fight or Flight! In simple terms, fight or flight response is the body’s reaction to traumatic events. The question is...are we going to stand and fight...or are we going to turn and take flight?

Philippians 1:20-21 says, “...I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
This is the core of this summer’s theme and message. We want to live bold courageous lives, not necessarily just for, but in Christ. So that by our lives, whether we live to exemplify Him or die to be with Him, all the glory is His.
This means we need to get out there. We need to be brave. And we need to engage this generation with the mindset that we are an active part of this Great Revolution. “...For getting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (3:13-14)

So the question remains for all of us...
Fight or Flight?

Cost: $360. This includes $20 of Camp Cash that can be spent at the Big Oak Cafe or on any of the free time recreation activities. To sign-up, bring a $100 deposit to Student Center B this Sunday!!! Any questions, pick up a brochure at the 'bambooth' in the Riptide Room (or download it from the 'download box' to the right of this post) or email christina@journeycom.org
