Water is Awesome!

The 4-6 campers here at Shetek have been having so much fun getting to know each other and God!  Water Olympics has also been a great activity for this week!   We had spoons full of water being dumped in buckets on top of counselors heads,  we had hoola hoop dive through, pass an apple with chins, and sink your counselor in a canoe.  Everything was full of water!

Water is a great symbol of baptism and with baptism we can identify with Jesus Christ.  Jesus separates us from the lost and gives us new life by having faith in his death and resurrection.  The Bible states in 1 Peter 3:21-22  “… and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also – not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God.  It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand – with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.”  Water is great for fun games at camp, sustaining God’s creation, and a remembrance of a new life through Jesus Christ!  Thank you God!
