"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” ~ Jesus (John 16:33)
Jesus was right - it's true: we will have troubles. But lately, we've also seen the sweet half of Jesus' promise: we've seen some troubles resolved. The big one? Water.
After many years of struggle, and hundreds of thousands of dollars of investment, Crow has a reliable, safe, permanent and legal source of water. The "new" well was drilled in 2010, and finally - as of 1 June 2023 - it is in use. This matters. Without resolution, the lack of water at Crow was an existential risk, threatening permanent cessation of operations. That trouble is solved, forever.
Join us at Camp for a Well Commissioning and Re-Visioning Weekend
7 PM, 22 September to Noon, 24 September 2023
The purpose of the weekend is:
- Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
- Enjoy time together in celebration;
- Plan for what comes next.
Crow has been living under a burden of significant uncertainty for more than a decade, waiting for resolution to this water crisis. We’ve spent hundreds of hours, and hundreds of thousands of dollars, to get to where we are now. We won’t have to invest the same way any more. We will have some capacity to try some new things, to pursue some new goals. This moment, right now, is an opportunity.
The opportunity to shape the community and future at Crow for the next decade, and for the decades to come.
We have the opportunity to prayerfully consider, and communally discern what God has for Crow next.
- Should we continue to offer programming at Gladstone?
- How should we update the site plan at Mountain Site and Lake Site?
- Everyone else has a podcast... what should we name our podcast?
Bring your family, or come yourself. Come for the whole weekend, or just for Saturday.
This is a very exciting time to be a supporter of Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp - there is potential for us to join with Jesus in one of his favourite kinds of project: the new thing.
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” ~ Jesus (Rev 21:5)
