SUMMER CAMP 2021
Summer camp is a full week experience where Eleven22 Students get to be TOGETHER to connect with each other and in their relationship with God. This is a week where we’ll have a ton of fun, encounter Jesus through worship and word and have times of discussion in gender/grade-based small groups.
The camp theme this year is “The Darkness and The Light.” Speaking of darkness, have you ever been in a place that’s really and truly dark? A place with absolutely zero sources of light? It’s a little unsettling, isn’t it? We lose context. We become disoriented. And if we’re honest, sometimes we get scared.
There is another kind of darkness that surrounds us. It’s not the absence of light. It’s the absence of good. There is a darkness we encounter all the time in our world. The darkness of depression. The darkness of addiction. The darkness of hopelessness. The darkness of violence. The darkness of oppression. The darkness of lostness. It’s the darkness of a world without good. A world without God. There is darkness.
But there is a light, too. And not just any light. It's a light that is overwhelming, all-consuming and perfectly pure . . . a light that refuses to be ignored.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” - John 1:5
There is a light that drives away the darkness. A light that drives out fear. A light that runs off despair. A light that shines for justice. A light that is comforting, and clarifying . . . A light that saves.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” - John 8:12
