Lessons from Camp

Remember the Goodness and Greatness of God

Each month, the T Bar M Staff gathers for Espresso … like Coffee, but with a little extra. We worship, pray, and learn about spaces around camp property, how it came to be, and how God continues to use it.

You can imagine our delight, laughter, and hanging on every word as Johnny Polk shared with us about the Standing Stones (formerly known as Lincoln Logs 1981-2010). It would be unkind not to pass on the wisdom and challenge he gave us, to you ...

There is no shortage of folks purposefully placing stones in places where the Lord did amazing things. Abraham, Jacob, Joshua, those that crossed the Jordan. Standing Stones were used by God many times throughout the Old Testament as a memorial of God’s blessings and greatness. So that, when the ancients would pass a standing stone, they would ask “What happened here?” And God’s work would be remembered, and HE would be praised. God was HERE and this is what He did!

And that is the challenge for our lives today ... “Our lives should be living stones testifying what God is doing in our lives.”  (1 Peter 2:4-7) Wherever God has place us as living stones, we are a testimony that He is HERE in our lives, and this is what He is doing. In your job, at your school, at camp, in your home, with your neighbors, at the store or in the bleachers, WE get to tell those around us about God’s faithfulness and blessings.

As we headed our separate ways to start the day, we each grabbed a rock to put on our desk that day to remind us to be that Living Stone standing daily for Christ.   

Though we, as T Bar M alumni, are spread out across the world, we pray for you as YOU are standing as a testimony to Christ and remembering His faithfulness to you.

Let's get to work!

I didn't know the value of good o manual labor until that first Training Camp at T Bar M in 1993, but it did set foundations that I continue to use today. The outcome of two hours of painting fences and moving rocks was quite more than two checks on the "to do" list. It […]

Never Give Up

They say a picture says a thousand words. And this one sure does. Paige (Nowlin) and Hudson High, lifetime campers as well as Coaches, would never have dreamed they would be standing in the T Bar M gym with their own kiddoes back when they were campers in the very same space.  Yet, there they were … […]

Earning Points for Your Team

Earning point in FUAGNEM February is a lot easier than you think ... applying the rhythms of our summers or years at T Bar M into our everyday life. We sit and eat with our friends. We strive to huddle up as a family at the end of a day, even if it’s only to […]
