Children's 2012 Summer Music Camp

(For children who have completed grades K-6.)

Monday, July 23 -
Friday, July 27
9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Bedford Baptist Church

Director
Susan Batten-Bell

Musical Program, Friday, 7:00 p.m.

“The Lost Boy” tells the story of Luke 2:39-52. Mary and Joseph lose track of twelve-year-old Jesus for three days, and when they finally find him, he is sitting in his “Father’s house”—demonstrating with his questions a great understanding of God. Within the musical is a reassuringly human message: even parents chosen by God can lose a child; even a perfect child can give his parents anxiety. The message is sure to comfort anyone who has ever been a parent, a child, or even those who have misplaced Jesus for a while.

Christmas in August dates back to 1890 when Annie Armstrong was WMU President. Initially called “Box Work” because women who might not have access to cash could give home canned food, clothing, books, sewing notions, etc., to missionaries for their personal use. “Box Work” had its drawbacks and declined in 1906. It resurfaced in 1940 under the name Christmas in August because for gifts to reach overseas by Christmas they needed to be shipped in August. Later, due to shipping issues, the emphasis was shifted to home missionaries.

Hopefully, your church will participate in Christmas in August, either locally or nationally. Some churches give to local causes that benefit our schools and neighborhoods; others send to North American missionaries. For names of 2012 participating missionaries and their requests, go to http://www.wmu.com/index.php?q=blog/children/ga/christmas-august-2012.
