This week we are doing America Camp in honor of the 4th of July. Yesterday we did our bible verse and craft. The bible verse that we read was Galatians 5:1 - "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." We talked about the fact that we celebrate our freedom as Americans on July 4th. But, this does not compare to the freedom we have in Christ if we are Christians. God set us free from sin and bondage when He sent Jesus to die on a cross for us. If we will believe in Jesus as saviour, we will be given a freedom even more valuable than the freedom we have as Americans. Elizabeth of course does not really understand most of this, but we talk about and hope that some of these seeds will bear fruit in the years to come.
As our craft we did a little firework paint craft. Since we often celebrate freedom with fireworks on July 4th. The craft did not really work like we wanted it to, but it was still fun. Today we made a firecracker flag. Elizabeth just loves crafts so much.
This one turned out pretty cute.
