“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…” (Romans 1:16)
Summer Camp is here! This year’s camp theme is Unashamed, taken from Romans 1:16. It’s our desire for the young people of God to rise up and reach out with the gospel. We want to challenge and commission students to live out their faith and share their faith with a dark and dying world. So as we do every summer, we want to get away and spend time with the Lord at camp, where we will be encouraged to deepen our faith and equipped to defend our faith. There will be great teaching from Pastor Steve Wilburn, Pastor Ronny Roa, and our very own pastor, Daniel Hooper. We will also have special music from The Sunset Pilgrims and Phil Wickham. You don’t want to miss out on this retreat! This is an investment that you will not regret. Register online or at any of our services. And to get a glimpse of what Summer Camp is like, check out the video below.
SWAT Trips and G3
With the two Harvest Crusades in Anaheim and Los Angeles this year, we will have lots of opportunities to go on the streets and invite people to the crusades and also train other youth groups in street evangelism. The Anaheim SWAT Trip is August 24-26 and the Los Angeles SWAT Trip is September 7-9. Also, we have several G3 trainings lined up in August. Please contact us if you would like to go on any of these trips.
If you didn’t notice, we have a pretty crazy three-week schedule with the Anaheim Crusade, Summer Camp, and the LA Crusade all back-to-back-to-back. We know, you’re thinking, Cha-ching! We want everyone to be involved in all that the Lord is doing, and we don’t want money keep you back. If you are interested in raising money for Camp, please contact us to get involved with the several fundraising opportunities that are available. If you would like to support and sponsor students for Camp, we are having a Car Wash and French Toast Breakfast Fundraiser on Saturday, August 18, from 8:30 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. in the back parking lot of Harvest Riverside.
Haiti Mission Trip
Many students are making the most of their summer by going on an international missions trip to Haiti. 16 people from Activate will be in Haiti from August 5 – 14 with the Harvest Relief Corps Ministry, as they seek to help rebuild the cities and strengthen churches that were devastated by earthquakes in 2010. Please keep the team in prayer!
