Donelson Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee launched 26 years of LOGOS with a year-long theme of “Camp Out LOGOS, Getting S’more Jesus.” Their sign-up for children, youth, and parents was held after Sunday worship with lunch—grilled hot dogs, baked beans, chips, and s’mores, of course—served at tables decorated for the theme. Parents completed registration forms and signed the LOGOS covenant and photo release. Payments were made or scholarships were requested. (Church members provide scholarship money as their way to contribute to LOGOS if they are unable to help with staffing.)
LOGOS leaders dressed as camp counselors and shared about the upcoming program year. Parents signed up for where they would like to serve. At Donelson, LOGOS is held for kindergarten through 12th grade, and all parents are asked to serve in some capacity, from teaching Bible study to baking desserts.
Curtis Sonnier, the LOGOS Team Leader, knows that “Camp Out LOGOS” is going to be a fun-filled year. They have meals, Family Time ideas, and recreation activities in place for the theme—a nature scavenger hunt, campfire songs, and potato sack races to name a few. At GenOn, we are thankful for the long-time investment in all generations at Donelson Presbyterian Church.
Glad it was helpful for you, Janet!
Thank you for sharing what a wonderful idea!
