where love is alive 

Ready for a CHARMing Summer?

        I can almost hear you saying…”Kevin, it’s not even SPRING yet!” And you’re right – but we have a great opportunity coming up this Summer that requires some advanced notice and early planning:

CHARM (CHilhowee ARea Ministries) is a wonderful East TN-based ministry that our church has partnered with in the past for campsite ministry and missions. We have again agreed to supply a team for July 7-11 for kid’s day camps and evening programs for families in the Townsend, TN KOA Campground. Every summer, CHARM reaches hundreds of families with the help of churches across the southeast and beyond. You have the opportunity to be a part of that ministry this summer.

CHARM’s guiding principle is Serving People. Their purpose is Evangelism; their method is Serving; their model is Jesus; and their staff is Volunteers.

Jesus said in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

Folks from a wide variety of states and backgrounds camp in Townsend and the fact that we’re in the church-laden south doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of families that don’t know about Jesus. When we share scripture and Bible stories and the plan of salvation with the kids during day camp, something amazing happens: their parents and older siblings hear it too, and they start asking questions. We experienced it!

People of all ages have helped us in Townsend in the past and we welcome all ages to be involved in this trip. If you have any interest or any questions, please contact me. We will have an informational meeting soon to talk about costs, schedules, etc. Asking questions and attending the meeting will not commit you to anything.

I know summer is a busy time, but you are needed! It’s a great opportunity for a family to serve together and the beautiful surroundings are an added blessing. I hope you’ll prayerfully consider joining us!                                      – Blessings, Kevin
