About the Winter Camp Theme

Spiritual Direction

This winter, we will be walking through the book of Ecclesiastes. Our hope for students is that they leave understanding that although many of us look for meaning and purpose in this world, it is only through Christ that we will find true meaning and purpose, as we understand what it means to fear God and obey His commands.

Visual Direction

Throughout the weekend, we will be showing a series of short theme videos that take place on the set of a talk show, where the host is interviewing our Solomon character near the end of his life.  Our hope and purpose for these videos is to set up each message that the speaker will be sharing from the Book of Ecclesiastes. 

Theme Breakdown

It would be an understatement to say that we live in a difficult and confusing world. In the last few years, students have faced a dramatic rise in anxiety and isolation. Even though we are aware of this, we often act as if it is not a pressing reality. Whether it be distracting ourselves from difficult truths or making up answers that give us peace of mind, we have all tasted doubt and have experienced the uncertainty and brokenness of this fallen world.

The Bible does not ignore the human condition of toil and struggle but directly addresses it. In the book of Ecclesiastes, we see that many of the things we use to distract ourselves are meaningless. So, what are we to do in light of this? Ecclesiastes 12:13 gives us a clear answer: fear God and obey Him. This winter, we are going to discuss what it means to fear God and obey Him, while simultaneously finding meaning and purpose in and through Him.

Theme Verse

The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

Ecclesiastes 12:13
