In the beginning, God created. God is still creating now. What do God and Creation have to teach us about how to live today?
Creation Speaks invites us to look to God’s Creation, including each other, as we listen for God’s voice in the world today. By looking anew at the Creation story, campers will imagine what each part might teach us about God and our place in the world. Light, water, earth, seasons, animals, humans, and even a day of rest will invite campers to listen for God, still speaking to them today.
Through our new understanding of the interdependence of all creatures and responding to our call as caretakers of Creation, we are moved to awe and wonder at the gift of Creation and the Creator.
If the people of God stop and listen to Creation, what might we hear? Shhhh, listen. Creation Speaks!
Want to go to camp, but it doesn’t quite fit in the budget this summer? We have scholarships for that! Everyone should have the opportunity to experience Camp Crystal.
Camp scholarships are an important part of the Christian Education budgets of many congregations. They stimulate greater camp participation and make Camp Crystal affordable for those who may otherwise not be able to attend. We encourage you to talk with your church to find out if they offer scholarships and sign up today!
In addition to church scholarships, there are scholarships available from the Fuller Camp Scholarship Fund, available for ANY child or youth who needs assistance to attend Crystal.
For more information, or to request scholarship assistance, contact Rev. Timothy Murtaugh, email@example.com.
