As we celebrate Christmas, let's take a moment to reflect on the true reason for this season. It's a time when we commemorate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The ultimate symbol of love and salvation. His arrival in a humble manger marked a turning point in history, offering hope and grace to all. We pray that above all else you know and experience the Love of Jesus and the ultimate gift He freely gives.
As we gather with family around our Christmas trees, let's choose to remember the blessings in our lives. This season reminds us of the incredible impact that even the smallest acts of kindness can have. In the spirit of this season, consider extending the joy and transformative power of giving the gift of Camp. A week at Barnabas can be a life-changing experience, offering adventure, friendship, spiritual growth, and unforgettable memories. It's a chance to share the spirit of inclusion and love that Jesus embodies.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, scholarships are available, ensuring camp is accessible to all. If you or someone you know could benefit from a scholarship, please contact [email protected] for more information. Because of you, no one will be left out of the gift of summer camp at Camp Barnabas. Wishing you a Merry Christmas from your Barnabas Family.
