What a day!
Today, our Cultivate campers had their first Cultivate-specific session, theme night, and Club talk! This year your campers are delving deeper into the “Seek” theme that the rest of Outback is learning. After lunch, instead of heading into bible study, Cultivate had a special session with Neal “Plowasaki” Anthony about seeking community with believers and the blessings that stem from living a life in community with others!
A little bit later, Cultivaters headed over to the Silverado pool for a luau pool party, complete with its very own root beer float station. After a fun time splashing, sliding, and diving at the pool, we headed over to fireside to hear from our Cultivate Program Director, EJ “Pops” Hibbler. He laid out the theme verse for the next two weeks:
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18, ESV
He challenged campers to place their focus on knowing Christ, in order to grow in grace during their stay here at camp and also when they return to their homes and to everyday life!
