What a great day!

Today our Cultivate campers had their first Cultivate-specific session, theme night, and Club talk! This year your campers are diving deeper into the “Seek” theme that the rest of Outback is learning. After lunch, instead of heading straight to Bible study, Cultivate had a special session with our IWS director, Neal “Plowasaki” Anthony, about seeking community with believers and the blessings that stem from living a life in community with others!

How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
Psalm 133:1 NIV

A little bit later, Cultivaters headed over to the Silverado pool for a pool party, complete with its very own root beer float station! After a fun time swimming, splashing, diving, and sliding down Silverado’s awesome slide, we headed over to Fireside to hear from our very own 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!

Please pray with us.

  1. Pray that the campers would quickly come to grasp the vision of Cultivate and dive in wholeheartedly to learn about following Christ, serve, and have fun while doing it.
  2. Pray they would connect well with each other and experience true community.
  3. Pray throughout these next two weeks for safety and rest! Camp can be tiring when you have as much fun as we do!
