Family Ministries Pastor Travis Cross - Excited About Our Summer Schedule!

What a powerful week of Revival Services we had in early May! It has been a while since I have been to a series of revival services, so I was so thankful to be there! The Lord truly spoke to me during each service and I was challenged in many ways! If you did not get to be a part of the revival or even if you missed one service I want to challenge you to get a copy of the CDs and listen to them!

I am so excited about our summer schedule! As ministries that go on during the school year wind down we are gearing up and getting ready for all of the summer ministry schedule. Here is a list of everything for you to know about and to please pray for:

VBS: Sunday, June 4 - Wednesday, June 7 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m each evening. We always have a fantastic VBS, and this year will be no different! Pray for all of the volunteers and especially for all of the boys and girls who will be at ERBC and will learn about the love of Jesus!

Children's Camp: Tuesday, June 20 - Friday, June 23. We travel to Carson Springs Camp in Newport, TN for a fun-filled week of camp! Our theme is "Who You Gonna Call?" and our theme verse is Jeremiah 33:3, "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know." We have 50 campers, chaperones, and youth helpers going!

2nd Grade Camp: Monday, July 31 - Tuesday, August 1. We travel back to Carson Springs with our 2nd graders for a one-night camp to get them ready for "big" Children's Camp next year!

Camp McCall: Thursday, August 3 - Saturday, August 5. This is our Father/Son Camp where the guys get away and do all guy stuff - lake activities, hiking, shooting, crafts, bugs, animals, and games while still learning about missions all over the world! Still have 2 spots left if you want to go!

5th Grade Boot Camp: Sunday, August 6 - Monday, August 7. I take our 5th Graders to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg for Sleeping with the Sharks as the 5th Graders transition from Children's Ministry to Student Ministry. Pastor John goes with us as the "children" become "youth"!

Mother/Daughter Retreat: Friday, August 18 - Saturday, August 19. The moms and daughters get their turn to get away and have their own time of Bible study, fun activities, and lake fun! Look Up Lodge is the perfect setting for this retreat!

So as you can see, there will be lots of fun and lots of activities for our children this summer! But I always make sure the focus is on Jesus, growing in their walk with the Lord, and/or coming to know Jesus as Savior if they don't already! Please commit to pray for all of these events and all of the children, volunteers, and chaperones who will be at each one!
