In just a few weeks students will be walking through our chapel doors, some for the very first time. It is our second season of winter camp at Hume New England and we can’t wait to see what God is going to do.
At Hume we choose a theme as a way of creating a parallel to scripture which allows students to see God’s Word in a new way. For those students who have never read the Bible, we want them to see it in a tangible way. We create relevant media to expand Biblical truth and in the case of this winter, God’s greatest commandment. In our theme “That’s It” we will be taking a look at Mark 12 when Jesus was asked what is the greatest commandment. He replied, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.
In light of living in a culture that puts an emphasis on social justice, all the good we do to love people is only good works if we’re not loving God. In seeking to love our neighbor, as a culture we have forgotten God. We want students to understand that goodness is a form of Godliness but denying His power. God asks us to love Him with everything that we are and to love people as we ourselves desire to be loved. That’s it!
This winter we eagerly anticipate how God is going to use the church, youth leaders and this ministry to reach young people for Christ.
