What is the Awakening?
The Awakening is an orderly, structured weekend designed for teens (High School Freshman – College Freshman). The Awakening is designed to bring participants to an awareness of each one’s need to accept Jesus as their Savior, and then begin to make Him Lord in all areas of life. The focus of the Awakening is commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. During the event, one will be inspired, challenged, and equipped for a close, personal relationship with Jesus, and for Christian action in the home, school, work places, and community.

The Image of the Awakening Weekend

I Samuel 3:1-10 is the biblical image of the Awakening. Samuel is a boy who ministers to the Lord under Eli, the priest. One night as Samuel is lying down within the temple of the Lord, the Lord calls, “Samuel! Samuel!”. Samuel did not yet know the Lord, and the word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him, so he did not recognize who was calling him. After the Lord calls Samuel three times, Eli perceives that it’s the Lord calling. He instructs Samuel to respond with, “Speak, Lord, for thy servant hears,” when the Lord calls again. Samuel does as Eli instructs, and hears from the Lord.

Please remember, events taking place at East Bay Camp are for adults and youth who have attended a Fourth Day (Banquet, Emmaus, Cursillo) or Awakening weekend. Children (and others who have not attended a weekend) should not be at weekend events to serve meals, attend registration, candlelight or closing. However, a great way to get the kids (and others) involved is to have them attend the dedications and make weekend agape.
