This year’s theme is Endless Love and it comes out of Ephesians 3:14-21.
We believe that God's Endless Love is not some soppy lackluster kind of love, it’s a ferocious and relentless Love that broke the curse of sin and death over our lives. A love that never gave up on a broken humanity but went all the way even when it didn’t make sense, even when we didn’t deserve it. For centuries this love has been calling out to every heart, see its beautiful in the fact that it doesn’t judge, it never condemns but always seeks to make us whole.
Our Heart for Summercamp 2018 is that every young would know God’s love deeply and that this would cause them to live with an urgency to see their friends saved. “Endless Love” for us captures the heart of the Gospel and our response to this love is to disciple and commission a generation that knows Jesus Christ personally and intimately, making wise decisions in a world filled with so many distractions and compromise. We will be a generation that runs after all that God has for us, not in our own strength but in His. We will not be restricted by social norms and expectations but we will believe for God’s best, his Endless power to work in and through us. We will be the generation that is committed beyond a seasonal youth group, accepting Jesus as the cornerstone, acknowledging our part to play and activating our faith as the Endless Love of God infiltrates all parts of society. We will be a generation that is committed to building the Church and making Her flourish as we show the world that the best kind of life is one with Christ at the center.
