Get ready for an Epic Adventure...
True heroes are hard to find!
Actors, athletes, and even comic book action figures compete for our attention. But these dazzling stars quickly fade, and few are really worth the attention they receive.
On the other hand, the Bible is full of the accounts of ordinary men and women (boys and girls, too) that had great adventures in faith. One chapter of the Bible, Hebrews 11, tells of many of these heroes. We learn about people like Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses, who “through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword…”
But these heroes are just the beginning! This story is still being written!
Hebrews 11:39-40 tells us “these were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.” We have the opportunity to be counted among these heroes – people living by faith in a world that desperately needs to have its attention pointed to the One who is the object of our faith. 2021 marks Camp Elim’s 61st year of introducing boys and girls to Jesus through our licensed child-care program. Under the guidance of our highly trained and well supervised staff, your child will come away equipped to live lives of faith and begin their own epic adventures!
Let the epic adventures…continue!
