Get "Fired Up!" for M.A.D Camp

This summer's musical is Fired Up! It is a light-hearted retelling of the 6th century B.C.E. story of the King of Babylon forcing many into prison including Meshach, Abednego and Shadrach.  Stories about Esther, Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego and their courage and faith come from this period of history.  The story of Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego has been a favorite of students over the years!  There are moments of deep feelings and humor as the story is told to communicate the core message: regardless of circumstances we follow a loving God worthy of trust.  So let’s get Fired Up! as we learn the story of Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace.
