Summer 2014 Bible Camp: June 23-26 Austin

2014BibleCampTheme:  An Attitude of Gratitude

Come join us this year as we explore how an Attitude of Gratitude brings benefits to every aspect of your life.  We will be exploring Jesus’ healings and parables as well as the Psalms for examples of how giving thanks and being grateful bring healing into our lives.  Bible Camp is open for kids ages 3 years* through high school, with age appropriate activities and crafts for each class, including snacks.

Middle and High School students are invited to be a part of a special art project for the church and community, as well as an opportunity to delve into the Bible stories through scripting and acting. Older children may also be Shepherds, helping with the younger classes, and adults are needed to participate in various ways.

WHERE:  Bible Camp will be held at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Austin, 1309 Guadalupe.

WHEN:  June 23-26 (Monday-Thursday) 10am-1pm

For more information or to volunteer, email ckheroy@yahoo.com or Click here to download REGISTRATION FORM. Donations gratefully accepted.

*Children should be potty trained or have a parent attend with them.

Balaam – Bible Film Camp

Balaam and the Talking Donkey from Numbers 22, 24, 31

When the donkey saw the angel and felt the presence of Love, she stopped in her tracks, which prevented Balaam from going to Moab to curse the children of Israel. The donkey seemed to be more willing to listen to God than Balaam and was able to communicate with Balaam in a language he understood. By listening to the angel thoughts, and obeying them, the donkey saved not only the children of Israel, but Balaam as well. That’s an example of God’s protecting power — what cannot God do?

Two more points:

  • Balaam knew God and carried out his commands, but he was an evil man, driven by money rather than love of God.
  • The angel threatened Balaam because Balaam was obeying God in his actions, but in his heart he was rebelling, thinking only of the bribe.

Elisha – Bible Camp Video

Elisha the prophet

Elisha was a prophet (Important Bible Dude).  His teacher was Elijah (another prophet).
Elijah, with God’s help, divided the waters of the river Jordan.  He taught Elisha how to talk with God, and let God’s light shine in him.  Elisha divided the waters of the Jordan river.  Elijah was taken up into heaven in a fiery chariot, leaving Elisha to continue to show God’s great works.
 Elisha was a leader.  He taught his people what to do, where to go, how to make the soil and water better.
He was bullied for being friends with Elijah.  Elisha knew this was wrong.  They should not tease about God’s great prophet Elijah.    And immediately two fierce she-bears rushed out of the wood, and killed forty-two of them.
God enabled Elisha to do many miracles. He brought a dead child to life again. He healed the Syrian general, Naaman, of an incurable disease; fed a hundred of the prophets with a small quantity of bread; and did many other wonderful works.
Elisha shows us friendship!   And the concept of Prophesy — what does it mean to know what God knows?
