Breakaway Outreach will be facilitating multiple camps throughout the summer for prisoners’ kids, under-served children, and at-risk youth. Our first camping experience kicks off in just a few days (June 4) in Robbinsville, North Carolina. Here are some specific ways you can pray for our summer Kidz Camps…
Dodging Delinquency Charity Dodgeball Tournament
This is your chance to stake your claim to dodgeball glory! Form your team and go head to head against others as you battle your way to the top. Proceeds will benefit Chattanooga area at-risk youth and help send children of prisoners to summer camp. Come out and play, support your team as a spectator, or just come out and be entertained.
Channel 12 news piece on the terminally ill man who collected and fixed up bikes to give away to kids during Breakaway’s Christmas outreach to under-served neighborhoods.
I love these words adapted from Ron Hutchcraft’s book, “A Battle for a Generation,” pp 11-12.
Never in the history of the Life Saving Service (set up to rescue people on the North Carolina’s Outer Banks beaches) did a drowning person come to the door of the station asking, “Would you please rescue me?” In every case, someone had to leave the safety of the station to save lives.
Today, our life-saving station probably has a steeple with a cross on top. The title of the life-saving talk is on a sign out front, along with the name of the Head Rescuer. Inside, people are singing life-saving songs and having life-saving committee meetings. The station is a great place for the rescuers to have their needs met, their strength built. And it is the best place to bring people after they are saved. But it is not the best place to rescue people. In fact, when it comes to lost teenagers, most will probably not come to our life-saving station. If we wait until they do, most of them will die.
