In Acts 4:37, Barnabas is nicknamed “son of encouragement.” This week, our FUMCFW youth are the Encouragers at Camp Barnabas, a special needs camp in Purdy, Missouri. All week, our youth will be paired with a special needs child who couldn’t attend camp without the Camp Barnabas medical staff — and their Youth Encourager to assist their camping experience. Sharing God’s love with these special children is another part of the programming your gifts to our church support. While each camper pays his or her own individual expenses for the week at Camp Barnabas, gifts to our church help provide opportunities such as this for our youth. Through your gifts, we as a church Transform Lives — and this week in particular, our youth and all others present at Camp Barnabas are being touched by your generosity. Thank you!
