Day Camp 2019

Day Camp 2019

2 July, 2019 @ 8:15 AM

Day Camp is a holiday program filled with fun and excitement outdoors within a Christian environment for children in grades 1 – 6 (Prep by consultation with Jess). Campers will be able to experience adventure in a bush-land setting where they can go for hikes, enjoy building gunyahs (home base in the bush), fire cooking, sports, arts and craft and adventure based activities.

Day Camp runs in the first week of the June/July school holidays at Triple C Campsite, Cedar Creek (just past Samford).

If you have children in grades 7-8 they are able to join in Day Camp’s leadership development program called Fusion, that runs alongside Day Camp. A great opportunity to learn teamwork and all the complexities of leadership.

If you are in grades 9-12 or above (including all adults) you are more than welcome to be one of the awesome leaders or helpers at Day Camp. Group leaders and helpers lead a group of 6-9 young people for the week. There’s heaps of volunteer roles that we need including full-time or part-time group leaders and helpers, cooking, fire cooking and craft helpers, first-aiders, prayer tent warriors, pack up helpers, and even welcomers and check-in helpers to be at Emmanuel 6:30-8am every morning and 3:30 – 5pm every afternoon. Day Camp cannot happen with out leaders, so we look forward to you joining our team!

9 June - Acts 2:1-41

Pentecost and the Gift of the Holy Spirit

Here’s what happens…

The disciples were obeying Jesus’ instructions and were staying in Jerusalem. It had been 10 days since Jesus had ascended (went back up) to heaven, and on this day Jews that had travelled from many different countries were gathered in Jerusalem to celebrate Pentecost, the harvest festival. This special feast was a time when God’s people brought gifts as offerings to God (see Leviticus 23:15-21). While the disciples were together, a sound like a violent blowing wind, came and filled the house, and what looked like tongues of fire, rested above their heads. The people were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different languages which amazed everyone. Peter addressed the bewildered crowd, explaining that the coming of the Holy Spirit had been prophesied by Joel, and was the fulfilment of Jesus words too.

- If you had been with the believers on this day, what do you think you would have seen, heard and felt? Do you think your reaction would have been more like that of the people in verse 12 or verse 13?

- What happened to the believers on the Day of Pentecost? And everyone else?

- What do you think is the point that Peter wants the people to understand about the current events (verse 13, 17 & 18)?

- What response is Peter urging the new believers to take (verse 38)? Have you made that response before? Would you like to make it today?

- Have you ever experienced an empowering from the Lord to witness about Christ? Explain what it was like.

- What do you think this passage saying to you in your current circumstances? What are you going to do about it?
