Rock-N-Water – A Poem

Rock n’ Water

Away from the cities,

nestled in the hills,

by the lollipop tree,

and a river that fills,

 

There is a small beach

between brush, with a rock,

a sound place to stand,

a bit firmer than sand.

friends at camp

‘Rock n’ Water’

this place has been deemed,

and many a young person

has stood here and dreamed.

 

Awaiting a raft,

and a day full of fun.

Learning how with one bucket,

to splash everyone!

boy in helmet and harness rock climbs on granite cliff at summer camp

Then off we go

rafting, climbing and more,

Pushing limits, Seeking truth –

Fellowship to restore.

 

Each has a moment

to face what they fear,

With a guide, friends and faith,

any challenge, we’ll clear!

 

The sun sets each night,

past the rock, past the hills.

People come. People go.

We share time.  God full fills.

church youth group gathered around campfire at camp

We light fires in the dark,

and sing rounds of song,

We clap hands like rain,

and shout O’ Akimbo, Ukimba, Lou’eh!

 

We laugh, and we pray,

and we seek understanding.

Then under the stars,

in sound slumber, we’re landing.

 

Such a special place,

tucked away in the world.

A rock to stand on,

amidst the swirl.

Statement of Belief

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)

Who we are

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact young people with the joy of God's Living Word, so they might come to know Jesus and pass on God's love with excitement. We focus our program on biblical principals, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
