During the week of July 5-9, our Student Ministry hosted a week of “Night Camp” for students who have completed 6th-12th grades. This was in response to cancelling both Passport camp and the annual high school mission trip due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns.

Throughout the week, students and adults engaged in Bible study, worship, prayer, games and service projects. These projects included writing cards to church members, neighborhood beautification, packing meals for some of Charlotte’s homeless population, and cleaning our church’s vans.

The theme of camp was “Know God” and we talked about the unique and sometimes unexpected things we can do to truly know God better, specifically surrounding creation, prayer, evangelism, and worship. This theme and it’s corresponding teachings, prayer experiences, and small group studies helped students grow in their faith.

Since travel was not an option this year, this camp was designed to bring our students together in a safe manner that still fulfilled the priorities of our Providence Will strategic plan. I know that being together (in person) as a Student Ministry was life giving for all involved. You can view the highlights of the week on the Student Ministry’s YouTube page.
