Scripture Reading: 1 John 3:1-3

 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Praise and Worship Contd.

Shining Stars Camp Can-Do Summer Classes and Adventures 2024  began on July 2nd,2024.

 Update on Week 1 of Shining Stars Camp Can-Do

Thanks for prayers, to God, Staff, Volunteers, Campers and Parents and all those who donated time and resources.  The theme for the week focused on: Shine Your Light on Courage, Faithfulness and Respect through the life of Jesus, Abigail, David and Goliath and Music. In addition, campers and staff participated in gardening, canoeing/kayaking, sports, baking, arts and crafts, berry picking and canning, plant science, sports activities, and biking.

Continue to pray for Week 2 as the camp focus on: Shine Your Light on Kindness as modeled by Jesus, organization, safety in travel and various  activities in and outside the community.

Dear Lord, grant us fortitude /courage to be your children of light especially in areas where darkness appears to suffocate your light. Let the power of your resurrection engulf our hearts, bodies, and souls to intentionally live lives that reflect your truth and unconditional love. Convict our hearts today and let us practice daily the truths that have been handed down to us.

 Philippians 2:1-4 ” Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.”

Philippians 2:14-16

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life.

Let us pray for cessation of current wars and forgiveness to reign in all our hearts so that true peace can be experienced.
