Romans 6:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" - Romans 6:23

At K-Kountry and Kanakuk Kamps we have one goal, one mission, and one purpose: to create fun and lasting experiences, that give us an opportunity to share the Gospel in a relatable way. One such opportunity that we use at K-Kountry is Bible class; a time set aside from the fast pace of kamp, to take the time to dive in to the Word.

At Bible class each kamper goes over Romans 6:23, and how it relates specifically to them. We are not at Bible class to dive in to the theology behind each and every word, but to explore what exactly is the free gift of God, and what it means. This is such a great time for each kamper to ask questions, to learn, and to be poured in to by their counselors.

Bible class is such a great experience because of how representative it is of kamp as a whole. How much of a blessing it is to have the chance to minister and pour in to each and every kamper's life away from the contrasting distractions of the world. To see the spark in kamper's eyes when they realize why a gift is a gift, and why the free gift of God through Christ Jesus is so far beyond anything of this world, is something so special. 

The growth that happens at Bible class and K-Kountry is why we do kamp, why we have the waterslides and the blob, and why we do what we do. It is all for incredible moments such as a kamper saying that it is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me.
