1. Start Packing Soon
My wife and I need to pack for ourselves and for two toddlers so it always feel like we are moving our home when we travel. A good reminder for you, especially if you are traveling as a family, is that holiday can be a very stressful time for the family. So packing early can help and make your stresses more manageable.
2. Do Some Soul Searching on Your Commute
We all know this is going to be a fun and amazing time together as a church, but let us not forget that this is also a sacred time and space we will have with God (wherever you are, even if you are in town). Start doing some soul searching and reflection on your own before Friday comes. What has occurred to you lately that you think God is trying to speak to you about? Maybe we are stuck somewhere spiritually and can use this opportunity to allow God to do some work in us? Pray and get your heart ready. Remember God is already at Mission Spring (or wherever you are going), ahead of us all.
3. Make Some New Friends this Weekend
Whether this is your first time going to Camp Cov or it is your tenth time, Camp Cov is a great opportunity to meet some new friends and deepen some existing friendships. This is going to be a great opportunity for some new intergenerational relationship as well. I encourage you to get to know people who are from a different generation or folks you seldom get to talk to at church.
4. Give Thanks for Those who Sacrificed for our Country
Memorial Day is the reason we have this long weekend, so let us not forget the sacrifices that our veterans, our armed forces, and our service men and women have made and continue to endure for our country.
Have a blessed weekend!
