Youth Camp (June 10-14)
What will your generation be remembered for?
And my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Many times throughout history, we have seen the people of God rise up and turn back to Him with passion and fervor for their faith in times of great revival. What is revival? It isn’t goosebumps or an emotional high. Revival is the spiritual awakening of God’s people to their true nature and purpose. Revival is mainly for God’s people, but those who do not know Christ also benefit because Christians actually get serious about their faith. Has the time come for another great revival? Will your generation lead the way? Join us for FUGE Camps 2024 as we look at four stories in the Bible of great change and revival that resulted in generational impact and be challenged to make a difference for generations to come.
Pray and Turn to the Lord | Hannah and Samuel
Scripture: 1 Samuel 1:9-20, 26-28 and 1 Samuel 7:2-14
Key Verse: This is the confidence we have before him: If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14
Life Questions: Is prayer an active part of your life? What can you do to spend more time with God?
Samuel, a prophet in Israel, ushered in a time of revival for
the Israelites by calling the people to repentance and to turn away from their false gods and to turn to and worship only God. Samuel, whose life was the result of the prayer of his mother, Hannah, called out to God in prayer and offered a sacrifice. The obedience to Samuel’s call to repentance led to the end of Philistine domination and a reclaiming of land and towns. It also signaled a time where the people served and worshiped only God.
Confess and Repent of Your Sins | John the Baptist
Scripture: Luke 1:57-66, Luke 3:1-22
Key Verse: Therefore repent and turn back, so that your sins may be wiped out. Acts 3:19
Life Questions: What sins do you need to admit and turn away from?
After 400 years of silence from God with no divine revelations or prophets, John the Baptist initiated a time of revival as the forerunner of Christ, one who would prepare the way to the Messiah. His preaching was bold and uncompromising with a focus on repentance. He always pointed people to Jesus.
Obedience and Worship the Lord | Hezekiah
Scripture: 2 Chronicles 29:1-11, 27-30; 2 Chronicles 30:1-9, 26-27
Key Verse: Let everything that breathes praise the Lord. Hallelujah! Psalm 150:6
Life Questions: In what area do you need to obey God’s leading? Is your life one of worship to the Lord?
After years under the leadership of ‘bad’ kings, the Israelites, under King Hezekiah, experienced a time of revival. Hezekiah removed pagan objects of worship from the temple and reinstated temple worship of God only. Under Hezekiah’s leadership, the people purified the streets of Jerusalem of pagan altars. And, he brought back the Passover celebration.
Heed the Call and Share Your Passion – Phillip
Scripture: Acts 6:2-7; 8:4-8, 26-40
Key Verse: Do not lack diligence in zeal; be fervent in the Spirit, serve the Lord. Romans 12:11
Life Question: Are you passionate in your faith and pursuit of the Lord? Do you have a sense of urgency in sharing Jesus with others?
Phillip was a follower of Christ who became one of the seven chosen to serve and assist the twelve disciples. He was a man full of wisdom and the Holy Spirit. He heard and heeded the call of the Lord to share with the Samaritans, which was the beginning of a revival in the church, bringing peace, strength, and an increase in the Kingdom.
