2020 Summer Camp has been canceled
We are very sorry to have to announce: the State of Massachusetts is not allowing any overnight camps to operate until the summer of 2021. Despite very positive progress in Massachusetts’ efforts to control the spread of COVID-19, this was a disappointing change to the state’s reopening plans. We are uncertain at this time how this affects our fall Guest Retreat season and will provide an update as soon as we have more information to share.
Thank you to all those who were planning to join us this summer. We are heartbroken that we will not be able to spend a week with you having fun, building friendships, enjoying the outdoors, and praising our Savior Jesus Christ. We will continue to trust God because He is trustworthy!
We desire that everyone coming into contact with this global ministry will:
Accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior…
Grow in their faith and Christian character development…
Establish the priorities of prayer, Bible study, and Christian fellowship while associating with a local church…
and devote their lives in service to our Lord Jesus at home and abroad.
We will continue to emphasize ministries to youth.
Located in the beautiful Berkshires of Southwestern Massachusetts, Hume New England Christian Camps is a year-round youth camp and retreat center providing life-changing programs and experiences.
What’s so great about Jesus?
God loves us more than we can imagine
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).
We are sinful and deserve to be separated from a holy God
We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23).
God sent His Son Jesus to sacrifice His life for you
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!
“Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said:
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:
I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, or have questions about any of it, please let us know, we’d love to talk! Because we believe Jesus is the real deal. He makes lost things found. Broken things new. Dead things alive!
