Act Justly. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.
We hear these famous words from Micah every now and then at church, but what do they really mean? What does it look like to seek God’s kind of justice? To be so grace-filled that people say we love mercy? To walk in a matter that is humble, like Jesus? That’s what we’ll be focusing on this year at camp, and it’s going to be a ton of fun!
A different kind of camp
This year we’re doing something a little different. We’re going to be working with a few other churches and groups to put on our own week of camp at Brand Christian Campground inside Bentsen State Park. Our friends from Emmanuel Laredo will be there, and we’ll make some new friends from the colonias in Penitas. It’s going to be a hot week in South Texas, but we’re so excited for it.
Mission OfferingJeff and Alicia Lee live and serve as CBF Field Personnel in Skopje, Macedonia.
They minister to others in a variety of ways. Alicia is a licensed counselor and offers her services to adults with cognitive disabilities, to children and families, to refugees, and others. Jeff’s background is in agriculture; he is even working on a doctorate right now. Jeff teaches ESL at a group home for adults with cognitive challanges and helps with them with their farm. He also helps at a dairy farm, works with refugees and more.
Each night we will watch a video with Jeff and Alicia sharing what they do.

South Padre IslandOn Friday we’ll pack up, eat breakfast, and make our way to South Padre Island for a day of fun! Including Sand Castle Team Building with Sandy Feet, check out the work at Sea Turtle Inc, and enjoy a seafood dinner at Pirates Landing.
Worship/Bible StudyWe’ll be walking through Micah 6:1-8 in our morning Bible studies, afternoon worship services, and evening vespers. Worship will look similar to the Passport camp services that we love, with preaching from our camp pastor Emmitt Drumgoole and worship with our worship leader Michelle Shackelford!
