Covenant Harbor Work Day (Believe.Love.Serve)

On Saturday, May 14th the Mission Team will be leading a Covenant Harbor Work Day alongside other Central Conference Covenanters that Harbor has called their “Believe.Love.Serve” campaign.  This will be an all day adventure with the theme from 1 Cor. 12:5 “There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.”

This will be an all day adventure starting at 9am and ending around 4pm. More information can be found on their website, but there are a number of projects they have in store: Painting, Cleaning, Gardening, and Construction.

All ages are welcome and encouraged to take part in this needed ministry to our camp.

If you are able to attend, please contact Craig Johnson as soon as possible so he can arrange the necessary transportation.  Rides will be available as long as you let him know with enough time to get them arranged.  Craig Johnson - johnson-craig (at) sbcglobal (dot) net

2o3 Expands

For the last month we have seen a consistent group of students at our Wednesday evening youth group event 2o3 starting at 7pm. “2o3″ comes from Matthew 18:20, where Jesus promises to be present wherever 2 Or 3 gather. At each 2o3 night we begin the evening with a group game, that often was a challenge between our middle school and high school youth.  Pictured below are the last two challenges we did between the groups.  Sadly, the middle schoolers have taken a turn for the worse in the challenges and are about 10 games behind the high schoolers. So, as to not remind them of their streak of losses, I have tried to quietly stop the challenges the last two weeks despite the middle schooler’s insistence each week…  Go figure.

Anyways, the following 3 photos show two of the challenges that took place on March 23rd and April 6th as well as a photo I quickly snapped while at the Chicago Invite, the largest ultimate frisbee tournament in the nation that my wife and I host each year.

We will continue to meet for 2o3 until the last week of school, where our final 2o3 for the school year will be a party of sorts.  Expect to hear updates on what our summer plans will be for the youth in the next few weeks.
