New Teens Camp ~ 22-24 Nov 2014
New Teens Camp (NTC) 2014 was held at Adam Church from 22-24 November, with a wonderful sum of 27 students excluding group facilitators and camp commander Sister Shi Sang. Through God's grace, 2 JB sisters and 1 truth-seeker were able to participate. The camp revolves around Joseph as one who forgives and obeys God, who is truthful and faithful in his life of faith. This enhances the camp‟s main theme which is centered round Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time”. The camp aims to encourage our new teens to be like Joseph, and able to see God‟s beautiful will even in the toughest times.
An array of events was planned just for the students: from indoors to outdoors, from games to prayer sessions. Sharing sessions by Preacher Chong such as "Gravity" help students understand the importance of having the right Christian mindset and the placing God as life‟s core. Small group sessions help to reinforce the idea as well. What is new and unique about NTC‟14 is the activity „Know our church sacraments‟. Students are brought to the baptismal site to witness baptism first-hand, and also foot-washing and Holy Communion sacraments that were held in the Telok Kurau church. Sacraments are truly important and this camp serves as a bridge for students to better understand the church sacraments.
The camp was able to run smoothly because of God‟s grace and abidance. May all that was done in His name was pleasing and glorifying.
All glory to God.
