Elyon Summer 2024 Theme

About the Summer Camp Theme

Throughout the week at camp, we will be walking through parts of the book of Matthew, focused on the person of Jesus. If you haven’t read this book before, take some time before camp to read it. As you do, pray and ask the Lord to reveal the truth of His Word to you; maybe jot down some questions that come up and talk with your youth pastor, small group leader, or a mentor about them before you come to camp.  

Spiritual Direction

Jesus is the central figure of the Bible and of all history which necessitates a response from all of us. This summer, we will be looking at the person of Jesus through the book of Matthew. As Jesus reveals who He is, He asks His disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” In the same way, all of humanity must answer the question, “Do you believe that Jesus is who He says He is?”

Visual Direction

We will be showing a series of short theme videos that take place in a dystopian humanoid world, where we follow Maddix, a tax collecting bot, as he encounters an unusual bot named Elyon; and he must overcome his disbelief and pride to discover if this bot really is the Savior, the One worth giving up everything he has ever earned or cared about in life to follow. Our hope and purpose for these videos is to set up each message that the speaker will be sharing from the Book of Matthew about the person of Jesus. 

Theme Verse

Matthew 16:13-16

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
