CareWeek is a local mission opportunity where our students and leaders spend a week seeking to carry out the Great Commission by caring for our community and connecting them to Christ through construction efforts and our local sports and arts camp. Each year we send out 4-5 construction crews made up of students and student ministry leaders, who use volunteer projects as a platform for sharing Christ with homeowners and neighborhoods. These projects include but are not limited to building wheelchair ramps, decks, roofing, siding, landscaping, and painting. Through construction our students have had many privileged opportunities to share their faith with others through actions and words. The other side of CareWeek involves a local sports and arts camp programmed and ran by our students and student ministry volunteers. Last year 259 campers participated in sports and arts camp, which meant 259 campers had the chance to hear about the love of God through Jesus Christ. Sports and arts camp is a load of fun, but more importantly it is a favored opportunity to share the gospel with campers and parents. This year CareWeek is June 4-10, and we hope to see your student(s) participating!
Summer Camp is the second major opportunity presented to students in the summer. Each year students and student ministry volunteers head to Skyview Ranch in Millersburg, Ohio for a week of outrageous fun and more importantly, intense challenge. Summer Camp serves students in such a wide variety of ways. For students who struggle to connect with other students, Summer Camp is the chance to experience the acceptance and love of the body of Christ in intentional ways. For students who love adventure, Summer Camp is the chance to be free. For students who do not know Christ as Lord and Savior, Summer Camp is the opportunity to purposely explore the great truths of the gospel and respond in faith and repentance to the Lord’s call on their lives. For students who have come to Christ, Summer Camp is the opportunity to take many steps towards the Lord as He romances them through His Word with His glory. Summer Camp is July 2-7 and we cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for Jersey Students!
