Lesson

Today’s Story

Today the video and Diana talked about how each and every one of us is golden, that God prayed for us before we were even created. God taught us today about prayer, that he prayed for us and in return we must pray for one another. The campers are going to get a couple opportunities today to pray for one another, but take this even further and have your camper say a pray with you tonight when they get home!

Today’s Scripture:John 13:34

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”

Today’s Story

The campers watched a video about Jesus washing His disciples’ feet. The kids saw that Jesus put himself below others to let them know they were on the same level. This act of kindness also showed His love for all of us. The campers then discussed how we need to show others our love like Jesus taught us to love!

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”**

Lesson

Each morning your campers are going to be learning about God and His son Jesus! The awesome part about day camp is that you get to see you camper every night which gives you a great opportunity to talk with your camper about what they learned that day. Take some time to re-read the scripture, listen to the song, talk about the topic, and ask questions together as a family!

2013-07-28 at 21-57-01

Today camper decorated journals for their craft!

2013-07-28 at 21-58-03

The campers are encouraged to write letters and draw pictures for God and Jesus in their journals!

Today’s Story:

Today we talk about the story of Peter and his experience with trusting God. The story talked about how Jesus walked on the water toward the boat and instructed Peter to join him on the water. Peter did so, but instantly feared drowning and because of that fear and lack of trust he began to sank. After Jesus saved him he told Peter that he must not doubt Jesus. The truth is right in front of us and we just need to trust it!

**Today’s Scripture: **John 14:1:

Let not your heart be troubled: yet believe in God, believe also in me.

**Today’s Song: **Truth by Reliant K

  • We talked about how is Peter was here today this is the song he would sing to us to teach us to always trust in Jesus!
