SCM offers free youth camp lessons. A five-day lesson series for youth camps and Bible clubs is available as a free download at The lessons follow the NYC theme, “It’s Not About Me,” stressing the importance of lifting up Christ and dedicating one’s life in submission to the will of God.


Buck-a-Week projects for 2008 include CrossPoint, the mission church in Salt Lake City, Utah; the Nehemiah Project in Spain; and the purchase of the Chame Property in Panama. You can share a part in global missions by setting aside a buck a week. The offering will be collected Tuesday evening, July 22, during the evening youth services in Charleston. Those not attending the National Youth Conference are encouraged to send their offering to SCM by July 10.


The theme for the 2008 National Youth Conference is It’s Not About Me.
