Announcements for July 25, 2014
This past Sunday, July 13, Bible Fellowship Church youth made their annual trek to summer camp at Hume Lake Christian Camp in the Sierras. It's a beautiful location and the camp is renowned for their ability to challenge kids in their faith in Christ. If you have committed to pray for a camper or a counselor, don't forget! because God will change both you and the camper or the counselor through the experience.
Traditionally at BFC, the Sunday after camp–which is July 20 this year–when the kids are fresh from their "Hume Lake high," they share what God has done in their lives during the previous week. Jason Stewart, who was also privileged to be a part of the camp experience with our youth, will give a meditation on the camp's theme verse: "However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace" (Acts 20:24). Wow! If we could all learn to live with such abandon for Jesus, what a different world this would be, yes?
And finally, since the kids all come back with their camp t-shirts, we have designated this Sunday as "T-shirt Sunday" and you are encouraged to wear your favorite t-shirt to the worship service. However, if t-shirts are just not "you," please come and enjoy the service with us and wear whatever you want.
