Camp #livedifferently will take place June 19 – 23, 2017.

March 22, 2017

Camp #livedifferently at Fairmont United Methodist Church is offering children a hands-on experience to make a difference.  This camp will provide children with practical ways to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others and carry this on to their home, school, community, and the world. With their developing compassionate hearts, they will become the hands and feet of Christ by sharing the love of God.

This camp is based on the Bible verse from Matthew 25:35… “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”  Each day will offer missional events that include age appropriate learning and projects about hunger, clean water, welcoming and helping our neighbors.

This camp is open to children from 4 years old through 5th grade.
Time: 9am – 12noon

Please look at your calendars.  Set aside time to be a part of the camp team and help the children learn how they can change the lives of those around us. Contact Tamara Ladich if you have any questions. tbladich@yahoo.com
