Firmly Planted

Psalm 1:3 "He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water."

Psalm 1:3 tells us that a tree planted by a stream will always be sustained. Join us as we explore the incredible design of trees and plants to learn how we, like trees rooted by streams of water, need to be nourished by the Word of God.  

Theme Programs

God’s word has much to say about the difference between the righteous and the wicked. Godly wisdom comes down to obedience; obedience to God’s word. While the unrighteous determine their own path they are blown away like dried up leaves. In Psalm 1, God tells us that a person who follows God’s word is like a tree planted by streams of water. Hard times will fall on both the righteous and wicked but the righteous have an unlimited source to sustain them so as to yield fruit in its season.

This year, we investigate day three in the creation week - the day the Lord made vegetation. We will look at seed bearing plants and trees according to their kind. How do our lives depend on this vegetation? How do these plants produce thousands of seeds in their life time? How do trees pump tons of water from root to leaf every day? What makes a plant die every winter but sprout anew each spring? These questions and more will be answered at camp as we become Firmly Planted.

Join us this summer at Living Waters Bible Camp, and “Firmly Planted”.
