Here is what our children will explore in Academy this month. (I know many of you like to reinforce at home.)
Theme: Creation Care
Memory Verse: Genesis 1:31 — God saw everything that God had made, and indeed it was very good.
Bible Story: The Creation [Genesis 1 – Genesis 2:3]
This isn’t the first time we’ve explored the Creation story with kids. But this time around we are really focusing on what we can do to care for God’s great world. God gave people dominion over the creatures of the earth, not domination. Dominion isn’t just about wielding power to rule, but utilizing that power to care for whatever is under our responsibility.
Holy Conversations: Do you have a pet? What is one way you take care of your pet? What can you do around the house to take care of the earth? (turn off lights when not in use, recycle, turn off the water faucet while brushing your teeth, donate to an animal shelter)
Also . . . We have some volunteer opportunities this summer.
Sunday Mornings — June 14, 21, 28 | July 12, 26 | August 9, 16, 23, 30
We need teachers from 9:30 – 10:45 am and 11:15 am – Noon.
Nancy will lead our summer film festival — The Gospel According to Pixar
I will lead a class on the parables of Jesus — Once Upon a Parable
And we will also have our popular Play Together, Pray Together class (9:30 only).
Day Camp — We need a Games leader for each day. You don’t have to do all five days. If you can do one day, great!
Thanks for considering.
