Church Camp: The Secrets of the Kingdom

Secrets of the KingdomThe First United Methodist Church of Downers Grove is offering a summer camp experience for children and youth from June 25 to 29, 2012. 

Camp offers children and youth the opportunity for fellowship with other children. It offers youth and adults an experience of God’s creation while exploring nature. It offers everyone a chance to experience Christian community and develop skills for Christian living.

This year, the theme of the camp is The Secrets of the Kingdom. Jesus used stories, called parables, to teach his disciples—and us—about what it means to live in God’s kingdom. In Secrets of the Kingdom, campers look to the Master Storyteller, Jesus, to discover four different parables and their meanings for our lives.

Secret 1: We are the Soil (Mark 4:1-9, 4:13-20)

Secret 2: We Can Ask Boldly (Luke 11:5-10)

Secret 3-God is Generous (Matthew 20:1-16)

Secret 4-God Treasures Us (Luke 15:1-10)

Camp will be held at Wesley Woods Conference Center in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. Wesley Woods is owned and operated by the Northern Illinois Conference.
