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

Religious people antagonize and want to control Jesus. He calmly takes them on in deep conversation. At the heart of the matter is the question: “Who’s your Daddy?”

John 8:31-47English Standard Version (ESV)
The Truth Will Set You Free

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you. 38 I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.”
You Are of Your Father the Devil

39 They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham's children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. 41 You are doing the works your father did.” They said to him, “We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father—even God.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
