God First, Other's Second, I'm Third, a lifestyle we strive to live by!
One of our most popular and valuable traditions at K-Kountry is the Gospel Skit! We know that each Kamper will hear the Gospel multiple times here at Kamp, but the Gospel Skit is a fun, visual and relatable way for the Kampers to understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel Skit itself is not the primary way we teach Kampers the Gospel, but rather, it is a platform and stepping stone in which we can build upon. We are merely instruments in God's plan and redemptive work, and it is amazing to see the ways that the Gospel Skit can serve as an instrument to speak life into these Kampers!
The skit this year takes place in Paris, France and it is titled "King of Cakes." The skit revolves around a successful baker, Chef LaBlanc, his daughter Chloe, and her best friend Claud. Chef LaBlanc just received France's highest award for cooking and has now been titled the "King of Cakes." However, it is actually Chloe's dream to grow out of her father's shadow and make a name for herself, hopefully becoming the Queen of Cakes.
On her journey to success, she makes a few mistakes and sins against her father. Because of her mistake, she and Claud run away in shame. They find themselves in the presence of some strange "cats" and realize that maybe leaving home was not the best idea after all.
Thankfully, Chloe decides to go home and seek reconciliation and forgiveness with her father. Of course, Chef LeBlanc welcomes her back in with open arms, despite her mistakes!
This story is a representation of the parable, The Prodigal Son. In this, we learn that regardless of our sin and mistakes, when we come to God, he welcomes us back in and loves us regardless. Our God is loving and forgiving and we are excited to continue teaching Kampers the Gospel through this skit!
