How can God be the same forever? How do I see God’s faithfulness in the stories of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? When things change, how can I trust God because God doesn’t change?
‘I am the LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob…’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations. – Exodus 3:15
In this camp, kids will learn about God’s faithfulness to God’s people throughout the Bible and throughout history. Kids will explore and discuss changes in the world and in their own lives in order to see how they can learn to trust God even when things change. Through Bible teaching and worship, reading and math centers, structured playtime, and hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering, and math, campers will evaluate change over time, specifically changes between solids, liquids, and gases and changes between past, present, and future.
After learning the Genesis story, campers will explore states of matter by analyzing colorful patterns in melting ice then creating and enjoying slushies to see the change from liquid to solid. Campers will paint with Epsom saltwater to evaluate evaporation and crystals. We will get messy with Oobleck slime and learn the science of non-Newtonian fluids. Campers will make a simple thermometer to explore how temperature affects liquids and gases. Finally, campers will collaborate to develop and model to communicate ways that solids, liquids, and gases have shaped the world and how God uses these natural processes to show His faithfulness and provide what we need. This camp is ideal for children who like to ask questions, children who enjoy exploring God’s great creation, and children who aren’t afraid to try new ideas and get a little messy!
