Easter is my favorite time of the year. It is a time to reflect on the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross. He died for you and for me. It is by His death that we can freely receive the gift of Salvation. Salvation is like ticket to Heaven. You do not have call TicketMaster to order your ticket.

Harvest Church hosted there first anual kids camp this month. The camp took place August 11-13. At this camp, the kids were involved in devotions, putt-putt, skating, swimming, worshipping, praying, and listening to biblical teachings.
Satan tried so hard to prevent this event from taking plan, but God had great plans for this camp and was determined to make things happen! That is how great and mighty our God is!
The kids actively prayed for God to do great works. They believed with faith that God heard their cries and that He would answer their prayers!
The kids sang songs like “Deep Cries Out”, “Praises”, “You Are Good”, and “How He Loves” as they worshipped the Lord. It was a joy to see young kids sing, lift up their hands, and dance before the Lord. God is raising up a generation of unashamed worshippers!
On Thursday and Friday night, the kids observed a dance synced to music.
The leaders had a chance to pray over the kids. It was a great time with the Lord! Not only did the leaders pray for the kids, but the kids prayed for other kids and the leaders.
In addition to all of this, the leaders made the kids a 20 ft. long banana split. And, on Friday night they had a camp fire and had a lock-in.

In our daily lives, we go through so much pain and struggle. Through trials and tribulation, we forget how important we are to God, and we forget how much God loves us. We put on the weight of the world more and more each day. We let the what others say and think about us define who we are. We neglect to remember who we realy are–who God MADE us to be.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” -Matthew11:29
REMEMBER: You ARE God’s original masterpeice.
“When God chisels the dead weight out of our lives it can be very painful.” -The Skit Guys
