Summer Camps for Youth and Children

Summer Camps for Youth and Children One of the benefits of being a part of a connectional church and the North Texas Annual Conference is having our youth and children participate in the the amazing ministries at Camp Bridgeport in Bridgeport Texas. Church camp can be vital spiritual experience for young people. In fact many clergy first come to awareness of God calling them into ministry at camp. Not only can camp be a blessing for young people as they mature as Christians but it is also a lot of fun and many form life long friendships with other campers.  Visit Our Website Junior High (JH1) Date:June 12-16 Cost:$325-$375 This camp is for youth who have completed 6-8th grade.

Children’s Sunday School Summer Update

Children’s Sunday school will not meet together on the choir room for the summer. K-2 will need to go directly to room 202 (where they meet when the classes split) by the men’s restroom upstairs. 3-5th will meet in 206, where they go after the split. Children will remain in the class or grade group they are currently in for the summer. We will promote in August as apart of our “Back to School” time. Katie Bailey

Children’s Camp (C2) July 11-15th

C2 July 11-15th Children’s Camp for grade 3-5th Children’s Camp (C2) July 11-15th Holy Covenant UMC will be attending C2 at Camp Bridgeport this summer. This camp is for those who have completed 3-5th grades. This can be a fun way for our children to experience the wider UMC connection as well as have fun, make friends, worship, and learn about and grow in their Christian faith. Starting in 3rd grade with Children’s Camp is the first step in getting the most out of camping ministry when they are youth. You can sign up on the Camp Bridgeport site. I will be there as a volunteer, but it would be great if we can have a female from our church there as well. So if adults would like to go and help please talk with me (Bill).   http://www.bridgeportcamp.org/bridgeport-camp-news-and-events/2016-summer-camp-changes

Message from Pastor Carol: December 2015

Advent: A Season of Being Radical When Jesus was born to a young unmarried girl in the humble shelter for animals, the people of the first century were unaware of God’s reaching out to offer all the people of the world the gift of love. For the misguided religious leaders as well as the tyrannical rulers, the appearance of the Almighty God was to be marked by fire, intimidation, force and control. God’s earthly intervention would be to indict those of opposition and elevate those of divine favor clearly designated by the social, religious and political caste system.

Jesus’ birth represented a redefining of greatness and authority that was and still is quite radical. God loved humanity so much that God took … Read More
