Slumber Falls Camp

Jesus is the LIGHT

SLUMBER FALLS BIBLE CAMP JUNE 4-6

Bring a Bible, lunch, hat, swim gear, water bottle and a great attitude!

9 AM- 3 PM  3610 River Road, New Braunfels, TX 78132  www.slumberfalls.org

Dear Parents and Slumber Falls Campers,

Slumber Falls Bible Day Camp planners and volunteers hope that each camper strengthens his/her spiritual knowledge and enjoys fellowship with other Christian youth.  Camp devotions, Bible Stories, crafts and music will emphasize how Jesus is a friend to all.

Slumber Falls provides a certified lifeguard during each swim time.  A nurse will also be in attendance at the camp during the day. 

IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT, PLEASE bring a WATER BOTTLE.  Being outdoors in June requires that the campers stay hydrated.  Individual water bottles allow us to eliminate using drinking cups.

Day Campers will need to wear closed toe shoes for their safety.  Also, each day, bring a lunch, swimsuit, and towel if you plan to swim.  We advise campers to wear sunscreen and possibly insect repellant. Hats are also advised during some outdoor activities. 

We have room for 5 boys and 5 girls from each church for the overnight.  The overnight campers should have completed 5th grade in May 2014. 

Overnight campers have the option of swimming an additional time period and if so, will need a second towel.  Please bring toiletries, sleepwear, sleeping bag or bedding, a pillow, flashlight and a change of clothes. Cabins are air-conditioned and showers are available.

Wednesday evening and dinner will be provided for the overnight campers and volunteers. Please plan to pick up your child Thursday, June 7 no later than 9 AM to avoid additional costs.

We look forward to enjoying the Slumber Falls Campgrounds and Bible based activities with your child.

Weekly Scripture

John 20.19-31 English Standard Version (ESV)

Here is John’s report on the first 9 days after Jesus’ resurrection.

Jesus Appears to the Disciples
19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

Jesus and Thomas
24 Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

The Purpose of This Book
30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
