Will You Pursue the Eternal Movement?
The Christian life is a story about pursuit. Jesus faithfully pursues all of us and, in response, those who choose to trust him humbly pursue Him. Jesus’ children must also pursue others and thereby pursue the growth of Jesus’ kingdom, an eternal movement of disciples committed to King Jesus. Jesus makes radical demands. He calls us to come and die to ourselves: our agenda, our ambition, our desires, and our sin. All who do this join him, follow in his footsteps, and find true life. They find true, lasting life within an eternal movement of God’s people. He says to all, “If any man desires to be my disciple, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 16:24-25).
2019 Kids Camp Theme
When King Josiah Chose Obedience
Join us in Summer 2019 as we take a crazy ride through the story of King Josiah as told in 2 Kings. Picture a time when God’s people are divided and in trouble. The Scriptures have long been neglected and the people are not living their lives for God—a time not so different from today. Then the whole scene gets flipped on its head when King Josiah rediscovers God’s book of the Law! There is much to learn from this captivating story of the young king who shows extraordinary faith, obedience, and determination to lead his life and his kingdom according to the words of Scripture. No matter your age, size, or status, God’s word must be what guides everything in life, even if the world thinks that’s a little topsy turvy!
Mock Day at Camp
Check out the Gospel-infused, Bible-filled, fun-packed, typical day at Crossings!
Mornings = Gospel + Heart Focus
A high-energy time every morning that includes lots of fun, live sketches, videos, announcements, games, and music. Morning Celebration ensures your kids are awake and ready to study God’s Word.
We separate middle and high school and give them in-depth exposition of God’s Word from our camp pastor followed by a staffer-led breakout time of discussion and application.
After Bible study, our staffers invest in your students via games, guided conversations, and hang out time. Our staffers are trained to build relationships with your students for the purpose of Gospel transformation.
Afternoons = High-Energy Indoor + Outdoor Activities
Points of Impact (POIs)
We make every moment intentional. At the end of each event, our staffers spend a few minutes discussing with students how that particular activity illustrates the Gospel.
Our premier properties offer private recreation lakes with lifeguards present at all times. Students have the opportunity to experience water zip-lines, blobs, water slides, and more.
During Connect, we encourage students to have personal quiet time in Bible Study and prayer. Devotional material based on the morning Bible study is provided to each student.
This is a designated time for you, the Group Leader, to connect with your students through devotions, discussions, team building activities, or simply hanging out.
Evening = Worship + Bible + Relationships
The worship service is the heartbeat of camp. During this evening gathering, we exalt Christ together in song, dig deep into the Word of God, and apply the Gospel to students’ lives.
The entire camp participates in these Crossings keynote experiences. These times are highlights of every camp week that foster unity, team-building, and allow for a little camp-wide controlled chaos.
We want to strengthen the relationship between students and their church leaders. This is a designated time for you to meet with your group, debrief, worship, and pray together.
Before lights out, the Shack opens to purchase tasty treats and refreshing beverages. This is a time for you and the staff to continue developing relationships with your students.
