Dear The Living Room Church Family,
Please allow me (Elfrida) to share my heart about the 2020 Church Camp scheduled for October 31st – November 3rd (Melbourne Cup Long Weekend).
I have been praying about this and really feel that if by the grace of God, we are allowed to attend the Camp as a Church family, we should seriously consider not missing out on such an amazing opportunity to spend time together and reconnect after such a long period in isolation. It will take a miracle, but I believe it can still happen. It would be such a privilege to go away for a few days with you all and I never want to take it for granted again. Like many of you, I have realised how blessed we are to have each other and do life together.
Please…I do need to ask you for a favour as we move forward. If we are able to attend Camp this year after this season of lockdowns is over, and you are planning to attend, we need a solid commitment from you so that we are able to plan and inform the Camp of our intentions. I ask everyone that will join us to please go online (https://www.thelivingroom.church/events) and register before 31st July 2020 by filling out the online form and paying a $50 deposit per family in the nominated account on the online form. Please note, that if camp is cancelled, all monies paid will be swiftly refunded back to you.
You also have the opportunity to make regular small payments. My idea is to pay my tax return money into the account before I am tempted to use it, lol!
I am really looking forward to seeing you all face to face. This is not the time to become complacent as I believe God has an amazing plan for us as a Church and doing life together is definitely His heart for us.
I also believe our children need this Camp more than any other Camp before. I see how they have missed out on Kid’s Church and Youth, being together and learning about God during this season in their age-appropriate way. Yes, we watch Church Online together as a family, but nothing can compare to being together in person and growing in the many ways we have on offer as a Church.
Also, I ask that you please join me in prayer to come against anything trying to keep the Body of Christ isolated. Let’s pray for and believe for the best Church Camp ever, especially now that we have seen how easy things can be taken away from us. This virus will not set the agenda of our Church, our families and our future together.
Registration is easy, just go online to The Living Room Church website and follow the process using the form provided. Go to https://www.thelivingroom.church/events
Just remember that the computer doesn’t automatically calculate the Family discount. As mentioned previously, we have agreed that you only pay for the first 4 oldest family members and the rest are free. (Work it out and ignore what the computer charges you, I will process it accordingly).
So if all goes well, we will be heading to THE ISLAND, Cowes, Phillip Island, from the 31st October through to the 3rd November 2020. It is an amazing Campsite with an outdoor swimming pool, walking distance from the local beach, indoor basketball court, flying fox and many other games. The price also includes all meals. How great that we don’t have to cook this time around which means that we have more time for fun, fun, fun! Don’t forget to let the creative ideas flow for, drum roll…. “The Living Room’s Got Talent” Show.
As a Church Leadership Team, we will make a final decision depending on the response we get from you and as we consider the ongoing changes to the restrictions. Thank you for prayerfully considering your part in this exciting Church Camp and for being such a great support in what God is doing.
With love and blessings,
On behalf of The Living Room Church
