This is one of my favorite times of the year. It is time for the FCA East High School Football Camp at CUMC. Each year we have been blessed to have young men come to know Jesus Christ through this weekend. Last year, seven young men received Christ for the first time, and 23 others made recommitments to follow Jesus. That is what I call a return on investment!
This year the opportunity is even greater. We are expecting 65 young men at camp plus the coaching staff. This number is up from 38 last year.
We use this camp to build rapport with the young men. We also keep up with them and invest our time the rest of the year by mentoring and helping them to make tough decisions that kids face today.
We have six days left until camp begins and are in need of many items and volunteers. You can find all the details at cumcmemphis.org/fca.
We need help setting up the gym and goodie bags on Wednesday night, July 31. Camp begins Thursday morning, Aug. 1 and runs through Saturday, Aug. 3.
Aside from donations, we need volunteer involvement, especially small group leaders.
You can reach me at 901-326-7181 or by e-mail if you would like to find out more about participating in this life-altering weekend.
Thank you to all who have already responded. Spread the word and share this information with anyone you think would be interested. We very much appreciate your support as we strive to make this year as successful as it’s ever been.
