First we would ask you to pray for Summer Camp. This year our Switch students will be going to Camp Table Rock June 15 – 19. This is a concentrated time for our students to unplug from the distractions of our digital world and plug in to their relationship with God. Camp Table Rock’s emphasis is Defending Your Faith.
Second we would ask you to pray for Wes, Ryan and Anthony Wallick, who will represent Turning Point at Nazarene Youth Conference (NYC).
NYC is an exciting and life-changing event for high school students, occurs just once every four years. It is the second-largest event sponsored by the Church of the Nazarene.
NYC is open to students entering 9th grade in the fall of 2015 through those just graduated from high school as members of the class of 2015. This year July 8-12, thousands of Nazarene students and leaders will gather in Louisville, Kentucky for worship, discipleship, service, celebration and leadership development.
Today we wanted to put their faces in front of you to ask you to do two things:
PRAY FOR THESE STUDENTS
Pray for our students (around 10) who will attend Camp Table Rock. Pray also for the Wallick’s as they prepare their hearts for a life-changing event. Pray that their time in Louisville will be rooted in deep communion with God.
SUPPORT THESE STUDENTS
Support could look like a number of different things. Here are some ideas:
· Maybe you have a heart for students and you would like to support them financially. The cost for these experiences is steep and you might find yourself burdened to invest in the continued growth of the Gospel in their lives.
· Maybe God is talking to you or a group of people in your life to adopt these students to commit to regular prayer and encouragement for them and their families.
Use this as an opportunity to get to know these students, pray for them, and join us in asking God to bring about renewal in their lives and our community through their ministry there.
