Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from your 2017 CBC Counsellors!
Summer is coming!
We hope your children had as much fun as we did this past summer at Conestoga Bible Camp!
2017 was a fantastic year for CBC and we’re excited to already start planning for next year.
Although summer seems so far away, it always comes quickly, which is why we want to keep you up to date with what’s happening. In order to operate most efficiently and effectively, there are a few changes for 2018 that are important to note. Please take a few minutes to review the following items:
Hey guys, I hope you’re enjoying this Christmas season!
I’ve been at school the last 4 months just like a lot of you guys have been, I’ve seen the same people for the last 4 months just like you guys have. You see some of your friends just as much as your family. Everything ends up becoming a routine. It becomes a routine we live for and not so much of the purpose which we live for that God has graciously given us. There have been a couple times over the last 4 months that I have asked God, 'Why am I even going to school?' And the answer I always seem to get is to show love and grace. The second answer I received was to not get caught in my own excess familiarity of my now daily routine of school and other things in my life that further breed contempt.
Guess what?? Christmas is only 4 Mondays away! I don’t know about you, but Christmas is my absolute favourite holiday. I love the lights, the music, and the joy that fills the season. One of the things I love most about Christmas though, is the hope that it brings in a season where not much around us is vibrant and full of life. All the pretty colours of fall have passed, and we’re a long way from spring, yet there is still a feeling that something new and amazing is coming.
I hope you guys have been having a fabulous school year! I miss camp so much and can’t wait until next summer! Right now I am in grade 12 and I am having a blast while learning so many new things! One of the biggest things God has been teaching me lately is gratitude.
Our Counsellor Blog will be launching on Friday, November 3, 2017!
This blog is an opportunity for our 2017 summer day camp staff to share with you what they have been learning in their lives outside of camp and how God has been revealing Himself to them recently. You can expect anything from small devotionals to personal stories of spiritual growth.
We will be posting a new blog entry every other Friday starting November 3rd so join us here, on our 'Counsellor Blog' website page, or follow us on Facebook for all of our website update notifications!
What is behind every decision you make, beginning first thing in the morning?
What do you live for?
When it really comes down to it, there are only two options: love of God, or just plain fear.
Greetings from Motorhome!
What do you worry about? School? Friendships? Something else?
Wouldn’t it be great if we could get God’s advice about the things we worry about?
Well guess what, we can. Check out the verse below:
Heyy guys! I hope you have all had a wonderful year so far but if you're anything like me, you're already counting down the days until camp this summer.. (86 more days by the way & I'm pumped). I miss camp so much but God has been teaching me a lot since the summer. He has been revealing himself to me in ways I never would have expected but above all, God has been showing me that He is enough.
Have you ever heard about the story of Jesus Christ? Some of you might have heard it before it’s also known as the Gospel or the Good News! If you have never heard about Jesus’ life, it’s a story like no other, full of shocking and amazing parts all for you and me!
