My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
Something remarkable can happen when a child starts learning to see themselves the way God sees them. To us, that’s real confidence. This June, we are hosting over 120 children for our first-ever outside Vacation Bible School: Press Play! Our VBS encourages every child to know that because of Jesus, they can
have confidence because …
They are known.
They are forgiven.
They can change.
They can make a difference.
Vacation Bible School may only be one week of the year, but we are turning up the volume and Pressing Play all summer long at Sunday School and our Virtual Sunday School lessons. Learn more by visiting camphillumc.org/children.
Ideas for prayer for each day of June have been shared by CHUM Children. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
Let us pray for….
