MC Examples Abound!! Servant Event with the City Light Kids in Boise and youth from Beautiful Savior. Ellie Frisbee Lutz working with the Kings Kids from Trinity Lutheran, Eden, ID. Ellie is serving in a shared ministry position with Camp Perkins (May- Aug) and Trinity (Sept-May) Ministry to hosted retreat guests…Alison Pettyjohn came for Camp Rainbow Gold and now is signed up for the LIT camp! Her dad saw that our high school staff get to clean toilets…and thought his daughter might benefit from that! Camp Rainbow Gold is not a Christian organization, but the Cross is not hidden! It even took a prominent place in their nightly campfires. On the last night, Camp Perkins staff surrounded the group and sang You are the Light of the World to the group. One mother said it was like being surrounded by angels.
Community, Communion & Mission Jesus didnt wait for the lost to find him. He went out to find them. He took the initiative and He paid the price To release moments of connecting people to Jesus we need to be taking the initiative to be out in the midst of the people who need Christ in their lives Exciting to be part of the ministry at Camp Perkins!!
