Happy Wednesday from the Ridge! It’s CHRISTMAS IN JULY EVE!

Let’s talk about Christmas Eve Eve though. We woke up, spent time with Jesus, ate some delicious food, and headed out to our activity classes.

At lunch, we awarded some lucky cabins with the Chariot of Cleanliness and the Spirit Stick! Best cheer: Tailgate Tuesday!

Next, we watched Holly and Jolly show us their Christmas spirit! They sang songs because the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. But, Bob Humbug appeared to destroy all the Christmas cheer. When we sang, the lights didn’t come back on! Holly and Jolly lost hope, but Liger didn’t! She reminded us that we need to sing. So, we all sang together and slowly the lights came back on! Bob Humbug can’t take our spirit. With their newfound confidence, they headed out to create a plan to beat the evil coal miner!

During our good ole Bible study, we studied Philippians 1, where Paul writes to his beloved friends in the Church at Philippi. We learned that our lives are to be lived for Jesus and His ultimate glory. We do this through how we love others in and outside of the church, in good times or bad times, and ultimately for the proclamation of the gospel. Our life is to proclaim Jesus and that brings true JOY. AMEN!

At Free Time, campers checked out the Camp Store and had some awesome hang times with their counselors!
