Moravian Camping in Mid-States

tar hollow web

The goal of the Middle States Youth Ministry Council is to ensure that the youth and young adults of Moravian churches in Ohio, lower Michigan, Indiana and Illinois are able to participate in interchurch activities and further their relationships with Christ. We strive to provide appropriate, safe, and challenging programs for participants of all ages.

Each summer, MSYMC brings camping opportunities to youth in the Mid-States region. They use  camps in three different areas, each with its own unique fun and activities.  To learn more about the 2018 season and register for camp, visit

Moravian Daily Texts


Wednesday, September 26 — Psalm 110
1 Samuel 16:14–17:31; John 3:16–26

The Lord will keep your foot from being caught. Proverbs 3:26

We are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37

O God, our guide and protector, as we follow the path that you have laid before us—some days we walk with difficulty, some days we run with ease and some days we dance with joyful abandon. You are right beside us through it all. Thanks be to God! Amen.
