At First Pres Argenta, it has become our tradition to bring in camp counselors from Camp Ferncliff to run our Camp Comes to the City VBS. program. They do a fantastic job and the kids have a fabulous time every year.
But simply leaving our biggest children’s ministry event of the year to college students who come in for a week and then leave would be to miss out on an opportunity to build relationships with the kids from our church and with kids who come in from outside of our church walls.
I will be spending most of my week with the kids and counselors, and am asking that all of you who can, volunteer to be present in some capacity. You can take a morning or an afternoon shift to come by and help. You can bring lunch for our camp counselors. You can plan to come by at 2:30 on Friday, July 14 to watch our closing program.
Almost a third of our active church attendees are kids age 16 and under. Make some time to come and get to know them better.
