ASHVILLE, Tenn. -- LifeWay Christian Resources is hosting online worship events to enable kids and students to experience a taste of camp at home this year.

Alongside these events consisting of worship and age-specific Bible teaching, LifeWay will provide free digital resources to allow parents and church leaders to lead multi-day devotions, games and mission activities.

These resources are meant to assist children’s and student ministry leaders in discipling their groups this summer in light of traditional LifeWay summer camps being canceled due to concerns stemming from the COVID-19 outbreak.

“I’m so proud of how LifeWay’s camp teams have poured themselves into creating and developing these resources,” said Ben Trueblood, director of student ministry. “While we understand there’s no way to replace the live camp experience, we hope these resources will serve student ministries well this summer. We look forward to seeing everyone back live in summer 2021.”

Livestream dates for each camp’s free, hour-long event are listed below. No registration is needed, but access to the livestream and supporting digital resources can be found through the following links.

Following each livestream event, a video recording and downloadable resources will be available on their respective websites throughout the summer. This will allow churches and families to build a flexible online worship experience that fits their schedule or adapt the experience to dates a church had previously reserved for traditional camp.

The livestream events and downloadable resources are available for anyone, free of charge. Churches and families do not need to have registered for a LifeWay camp in 2020 to participate in the online camp worship experiences.

“We are praying for churches and church leaders as they navigate this season,” said Trueblood. “We know God uses camps to impact the lives of kids and students in incredible ways, and we are looking forward to serving churches through our [traditional] camps ministry in 2021.”
