CAMP WISDOM

As we transition back to in-person gatherings, we are pausing our Kid's Ministry Sunday School times. If you join us for Worship at 9:00am on Sundays, we do have quiet time activity booklets for each child.


Camp Wisdom: grades K-3

AUGUST

Each month we will be taking a deeper look at a "life app"  and stories in the Bible that go along with it. Each week we will leave with a bottom line to sum up what we had learned that Sunday morning. 



Creativity

Imagining what you could do because you were made in God's image.


W E E K  1

We kick off this series in Genesis 1-2:3 as we help kids discover something about the beginning of the universe. Looking around at creation, one can’t help but notice God’s creativity. From nothing, God spoke the universe into existence. No detail left out, creation gives us the brilliant creativity of a God who is big enough to create the world and personal enough to love us no matter what.


Bottom Line: There’s no limit to God’s creativity. We pray that kids will start looking at the world more closely and notice God’s amazing creativity. From the uniqueness of animals to breathtaking landscapes throughout the word, not to mention the expansive universe filled with solar systems galore, we want kids to discover the wonder of creation and how it shows us how awesome God is.


W E E K  2

Next, in Ephesians 2:10, we discover how we reflect God’s creativity. Paul reminds us, We are God’s creation. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good works. Long ago God prepared these works for us to do, (NIrV). Because we are created in God’s image, we have the ability to create. Whether it’s the arts or the sciences or simple problem solving throughout the day, God created us with a purpose to use our gifts and talents to point others to Him. 


Bottom Line: God created you, so you can be creative. We often think about creativity only in terms of the creative arts. But creativity is so much more than that. When we use our God-given abilities to solve the problems we face, we are tapping into what it means to reflect the image of God. We pray that kids will see that no matter how they’re gifted, that God can use their creativity for good.


W E E K  3

In week three, we head to the Book of Esther. God’s people were in danger. Esther’s cousin, Mordecai, knew that she as the new Queen of Persia, she the perfect person to help save them. They put their creativity into action to devise a plan to trap Haman and expose his plot to kill the Jews. Their plan succeeds and God’s people are saved!


Bottom Line: God created you for a purpose. Kids are just starting to figure out how they are wired, what they enjoy doing, and how God has uniquely gifted them. We pray that as kids discover more about how God created them, they would start to understand more about how they play a part in what God is doing in the world.


W E E K  4

Then, in Mark 2:1-12 we see how four friends creatively figure out how to help their sick friend get to Jesus. Their friend couldn’t walk, but they knew Jesus could heal him. When they get to Jesus, the room is so packed they need to find another way. They solve their problem by going in from the top. They pulled the roof apart and lowered him down. Not only did Jesus heal the man, but because of their faith He forgave His sins as well.


Bottom Line: God created you to work with others. We can’t do everything on our own, nor should we. As kids are learning the importance of friendships, we hope they see that God put people in their life for a reason. They can work with those people to do more than they could accomplish on their own.


W E E K  5

We finish up the series with something Jesus said, found in Matthew 5:13-16. Jesus told the people listening to the Sermon on the Mount, You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill can’t be hidden, (Matthew 5:14, NIrV). When we tap into God created us, we can use our gifts and talents to point others to Jesus.


Bottom Line: God created you to share His story. God created each of us for a reason, a major part of that is to share His love with others. How we treat people and the words we say are important. We pray that kids start to realize how they can share Jesus with those around them.
