Soul Quest '08Find Your Wings
This scene was repeated all over the City of York Wednesday afternoon as clusters of teenagers painted fire hydrants, picked up trash, collected food for Blue Valley, sang for residents at Hearthstone Nursing Home, shelved books at Kilgore Library, provided yard work, cleaned windows, and the list goes on.
382 middle and high school students from fifteen states were on campus for the 27th annual Soul Quest camp. A tradition of providing community service one afternoon of the week was started several years ago and has become a great way to put the campers’ faith into practice.
This year’s SQ theme was Find Your Wings, based on the lyrics of the powerful song by Christian recording artist Mark Harris. Daily classes, chapel, and evening worship with Willie Sanchez as the keynote speaker, all helped to inspire in our campers the unlimited possibilities that God’s plan has in store for them and the power of the gospel and the good news of Jesus.
