Welcome to CMS Victoria
Summer under the son 2016
Summer Under The Son provided an amazing start to 2016 as we heard from speakers, interacted in seminars, chatted with the missionaries and gathered together as the body of Christ.
“... Every sermon, song, missionary talk, tea break and workshop offered opportunities to hear about mission and reflect on our call to be witnesses to the end of the world ...”
SUTS2016 wasn't just the conference, it is also the Summer Salt Kids Program with Shamilla Thiruganaselvam, the Youth Camp with Will Thiel and for the first time in its history, some sessions from SUTS were streamed live on the web, watched by supporters at churches in Warragul, Geelong and Warrnambool, as well as by some of our missionaries currently overseas.
"...it was our first time to Summer Salt. My three kids really enjoyed worship, Bible stories, memory verses, missionary talks, and meeting new friends..."
Amidst the fun and crazy activities that was SUTS Youth Camp, 12 young people began a relationship with the living Jesus Christ for the first time.
One said, “I now know what God’s forgiveness means to me - I don’t have to be bound by sin or the shame of my sin.”
Overall, Summer Under The Son 2016 was summed up by this comment:
“ ... it was challenging to be reminded of the urgency of eternity, driven by a gracious God whose interaction with humanity has always been missional ...”
In the midst of all the noise, energy and laughter, God was quietly at work.
During the camp, some 12 kids began a relationship with the living Jesus Christ for the first time.
Said one, “I now know what God’s forgiveness means to me - I don’t have to be bound by sin or the shame of my sin.”
And for many more, SUTS 2016 marked a point when they decided to let God have more say in their everyday lives.
An exhausted but smiling Will Thiel, Camp Director, said afterwards, “And that’s why we do it - to see youth grow and develop their relationship with God.”
