A group of 20 kids and six adults recently returned from a church camp that helped them jump into ministry and serve a community in need.

Cundiff and Post Oak Baptist churches spent six days in Glorieta, New Mexico in MFUGE.

Staci Hines, Cundiff Baptist youth director, said the camp is part of the LifeWay Conference Center.

Those who participated had a choice between children’s ministry, games and recreation, social ministry or PCY — painting/construction/yard work.

The social ministry group visited Salvation Army housing and assisted living homes.

The social group also went to apartments visiting door-to-door and asking if there is anything they could do to help.

A social ministry group also went to The Santa Fe Food Depot, a community food pantry, and sorted bad food from good food.

The children’s ministry group helped facilitate a VBS at the Salvation Army.

The games and recreation ministry went to apartment buildings and tried to get the kids to go outside and play with them. They played football, frisbee and hula hoops.

They also played games with the kids at the Boys and Girls Club.

The camp has about 1,300 participants total during each week of camp with 250 in each of the various missions.
