Moravian Camping in Mid-States

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


Monday, July 16 — Psalm 85:8–13
Deuteronomy 26:1–27:13; Luke 9:28–36

The Lord will bless his people with peace. Psalm 29:11 (NKJV)

You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. Acts 10:36 (NIV)

God of certainty and truth—we know that you have promised peace, but sometimes we can’t feel it. We ask that you help us to feel your peace, and to live in ways that carry that peace throughout the world. Amen.
