Project 61 Sports and Arts Camp will be Tuesday, July 26th – Friday, July 29th, from 10:30-2:00, at the Rose Bowl, an all-sports facility on the north side of 11th street between Memorial and Sheridan. Camp is free for students in the 1st – 9th grade.
Project 61 Youth Camp will be Monday, July 25th- Friday, July 29th. Every morning the youth will help local coaches staff the sports and arts camp at the Rose Bowl as a way of expressing love to kids and communicating to them the life-giving hope of the Gospel. In the afternoon and evenings youth participate in exciting games, awesome worship, and Christ-exalting teaching. Campers stay in cabins at Keystone State Park and commute to sports camp. The cost for youth attendees is $195. Scholarships are available upon request, contact Jared Tabor at 918-208-2222 with questions. Because youth attending Project 61 have the opportunity to staff morning sports camp for kids, all youth must apply and be accepted in order to attend.
Applications are now open for our summer urban ministry internship! This an opportunity for college-aged guys and girls to serve the community, study the Bible and urban ministry, and share in the life of an inner city church for the summer.
Applications are due Monday, April 11th, 2016.
The internship is a 9 week program from Sunday, June 5th, 2016, through Sunday, August 7th, 2016.
What can I say about this summer? Well, from the previous year of volunteering at FCA Project 61, and then Project 61 later that year, I had a strong feeling that I should return. I met a lot of fantastic people that were either members of Springs of Grace, interns, and even campers. Such joy came to my heart from the first to last day of camp.
With that said, I had just as, if not a better experience this time around as an intern. I was delighted to see so many kids return that I met last year, and how some have a growing desire for the Lord.
One 8th grader, Elijah, continued to amaze me with his genuine heart for God, and to excel in whatever he did. A verse that has been on my heart is James 2:14-17, What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Simply stating what I’d like accomplish is meaningless, unless I am out there actively working. This summer has been nonstop faith in action. I’m truly thankful to be around the members of the church and my fellow interns with a desire to help build God’s Kingdom.
Pastor Joe reached out to me about the internship and said, “It will be the best summer of your life!” The term best would be a dramatic understatement as to how meaningful, powerful and joyful the summer has been.
I can only imagine what God has in store for me and the rest of these wonderful interns.
