Q: What’s this summer's ministry theme?
A: This summer’s theme is Time to Shine! How can we walk out our love for Jesus that will impact all those around us? We must be the lights that God has shown us how to be through His word!
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth.
A: You can find a general outline for each night’s teachings below. When you arrive to camp, we will provide you with a way to pray with and for us from home.
Q: Why does Shepherd’s Fold do baptisms?
A: A week at Shepherd’s Fold is a powerful time that God uses to change lives. Baptisms are an outward expression of that inward change. It is a public statement of a camper’s commitment to be known and to live fully committed as a follower of Christ.
Q: What if my child wants to be baptized, and can I be there?
A: All campers will be asked by their counselor no later than Thursday if they want to be baptized. If a camper would like to be baptized, a Senior Leadership Team member will call the parent to discuss the camper’s request. Parents have the final say if their child is baptized.
Baptisms will take place on Saturday following the closing ceremony. And of course, parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony, baptisms, and awards!
Q: Do you have a dedicated page for all COVID-19 related issue?
