1 Corinthians 9: 24 – 27
24Do you know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
SCF Life Camp 2019, with the aim to instill in the students the determination to resist secularity of the world and the faith to be the Lord’s loyal disciples so as to compete in this world for the crown that lasts, was successfully held in Centenary Memorial Park on the 28th – 30th June, 2019.
This year, the theme of the camp is “Keep Running! Youth!” Students participated in talks and sharing sessions, and mission games. Reverend Ling Zhon Cheng shared with the students on the topic of ‘Breakthrough’, giving students insights of how they could overcome hurdles of life in the name of the Lord. Brother Ling Yii Paen shared with the students the impact of postmodernism and the roles of Christians as light and salt in this era.
Mission game on the first night, ‘A Fine Line’, students went through six stations: sins, broken relationship, trial, Lamb of God, resurrection, and salvation. Students were to experience the helplessness in life and the eventual salvation in the house of the Lord. On the second night, students went through the six stations of mission, humbleness, faith, seek for God’s plan, unity, and fellowship in ‘The Growth Plan’. Students were exposed to the essential criteria on seeking and growing in the path towards the Lord.
This camp went all out to touch the students in the mind, and the soul; they learn, they feel, and they experience. The students left this camp inspired and recharged to face hurdles in their life be it in their studies or their search of the Lord.
