The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.. — Nahum 1:7

Please Join Us for a Week of Spiritual and Physical Refreshment, July 21-28, 2018

You are invited to join Christian Union leaders, staff, alumni, friends, and ministry partners (and their families), next summer, July 21-28, 2018, for the second annual Christian Union Summer Getaway. Once again, we will gather at the beautiful CAMP-of-the-WOODS, in the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York, for a week of spiritual and physical refreshment.

Mornings are highlighted by chapel services that feature inspiring worship and biblical teaching. The main chapel speaker for the week of July 21-28 will be evangelist and pastor Lon Solomon. In the afternoons you will be free to explore all that CAMP-of-the-WOODS has to offer. 

CAMP-of-the-WOODS
CAMP-of-the-WOODS has been providing meaningful Christian vacations for families and people of all ages for more than 117 years. The ten-week summer season runs from late June through Labor Day. Each week guests enjoy teaching from internationally known speakers and teachers, such as Ravi Zacharias, Alistair Begg, James McDonald, Erwin Lutzer, and Charles Zimmerman. While parents enjoy morning speaker sessions, children from kindergarten through high school enjoy age-specific Christian education and make new friendships that last a lifetime. For younger children, childcare is provided during all speaker sessions and concerts.

Afternoon activities include: water sports; hiking; canoe trips; rock climbing; sand volleyball; mini-golf; tennis; shuffleboard; arts and crafts; and a wide variety of games and competitions in the massive Sonju Sports Complex.

Christian Union Activities
As part of the CU Summer Getaway, you will also have the option to participate in a number of Christian Union-specific excursions, seminars, and social opportunities.  

Space is Limited, Register Soon
Because the CU Summer Getaway takes place within a normal CAMP-of-the-WOODS week, interested participants must register early. CAMP-of-the-WOODS sets aside as many spaces as we need for our Getaway guests, but you must register before October 25, 2017, to guarantee your space.

Once registration to the general public opens on November 1, the available spaces typically fill very quickly. So if you are interested, please act today.

We are wrapping up another sophomore summer and have enjoyed getting to focus on just the ’19’s class for these past few months.

There are a few highlights from the summer, including a 4th of July picnic, which turned out to be a beautiful day for grilling out and playing volleyball, a welcome break from studying for the students. We also led a weekly book discussion on the book You Are What You Love, The Spiritual Power of Habit, by James K. A. Smith, which turned out to be a wonderful tool to discuss spiritual disciplines and how to train our hearts to love the right things.

The past few weeks have been packed with events to welcome in the freshmen class of 2021. Our upperclassmen “freshmen gatherers” have done a fantastic job inviting and bringing freshmen (’21s) to our events and encouraging them to get involved in a Bible course. We are pleased with the number of ‘21s who are looking for Christian community and desire to be in a Bible course. We hit the ground running with Bible courses this week, jumping right into Philippians for our quick 8-week term.

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. — Titus 3:4-7

The HLS campus is bustling with new and returning students. They anticipate great things this year and already envision greater accomplishments beyond law school. And this energy will bring both great excitement among the students and even greater expectations to perform at a high level and make the most of their HLS opportunity.

Greetings!

Thank you for your partnership in the gospel ministry at HLS. Your prayers are a significant part of how God is accomplishing his purposes on this campus and beyond.

We are a few weeks into the fall semester. All of the 2L’s and 3L’s have returned, and the 1L’s are becoming convinced that they will not only survive but begin to thrive amidst the intensity and intellectual rigor that is HLS. Coram Deo Law has begun its men’s and women’s Bible Courses on Philippians, focusing on the example and power of Christ for living in a manner worthy of the gospel. Also, we are beginning our weekly lunch discussions that make sense of trending legal issues from a biblical worldview.
