KidzWorld Camp is a Great Opportunity!

When I look back on summers as a child, one set of memories that stick in my mind is my summer camp experiences. Summer camp was a great experience for me to get to be part of the great outdoors–hiking, swimming, learning new skills, playing awesome games. It was also an opportunity to get away from the routine and spend some time focusing on what really matters–the things that will last for eternity, most importantly a relationship with Jesus. Camp gives kids a chance to bond with leaders who love Jesus and want to share that love with the kids. We are praying right now that God will allow us to take a group of kids who are ready to know Him personally and to serve Him with their lives.

KidzWorld Camp is open for kids who will enter 2nd-4th grades in Fall 2017. Current 4th graders are invited to attend reWired Camp with The Wire ministry so that they get a chance to meet the leaders and others students that are part of that ministry. You can get more information about either camp at newspring.org/camp. Invest in your child’s spiritual well-being today by signing up for camp!

Love–CHOOSING to treat others the way you want to be treated

February is all about love. But love can be a much misunderstood emotion. In KidzWorld this month, we are focusing on love and how we can love others because of God’s love for us. God’s love is unconditional–after all, He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins! We don’t have to earn that love or be good enough for it. It’s free given to anyone who is willing to believe. God chooses to love us! And because of His love, we can choose to love others. Is it hard sometimes? YES! That’s why we need to remember God’s love for us and then choose to treat others the way we want to be treated.

“Here is what love is. It is not that we loved God. It is that he loved us and sent his Son to give his life to pay for our sins.” 1 John 4:10 (NIrV)

“How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:18 (NIV)
