MERRY CHRISTMAS! What a fun and busy week! We held 6 Christmas parties in 4 days and gave goodie bags to the 140 or so kids who attended them. We handed out presents to 153 of our kids – birth through high school. We ate over 1000 chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A, too many cookies to […]
We spent the month of October continuing to look at the parables Jesus told. They’re such a great way for our kids to understand what the Kingdom of God is all about. We also took advantage of some warm weather while we still have it. We’ll finish up our parable series in November, and then […]
We’d love for you to join us at our annual Year-End Celebration Dinner. Enjoy a free meal with us as we say thank you for the ways you’ve helped us impact lives and offer hope this past year. We’ll share what lies ahead for Mission 2540 and how you can partner with us in 2018. […]
And just like that, September is drawing to a close and cooler fall weather is already here. We started the new school year with a new Bible Study series on the parables of Jesus. The kids love them because the stories are not only entertaining but easy to understand and connect to their lives today. […]

In addition to Camp Awesome, we’ve had our weekly activities on all our properties, enjoying water balloons, crafts, […]
I wanna go home. Please, Brooks. Take me home! No. I can’t. Why? Why can’t I go home. Because it’s 11 at night. I don’t have a ride home for you right now. You need to stay here. You said we go home if we get in a fight. So I’m gonna go hit someone. […]
The first month of the summer is over, and it was full of all kinds of fun with water balloons, visits from youth mission groups, and fun crafts.
The last month of the school year flew by! We had big crowds of kids each week – we’re averaging almost 110 total kids each week – and we enjoyed beautiful weather. The kids are definitely ready for Summer Vacation (and our weekly dose of water balloons)!
