This past Sunday was a special week at Fairlawn! We celebrated Earth Day by celebrating our church’s commitment to supporting kids attending Lake Scugog Camp! Staff from Lake Scugog Camp were present to help lead activities and following the service a silent auction was held to support the camp.
The activities this Sunday had a particular earth and recycled materials focus. We made terrariums out of recycled gum containers, painted rocks, made film canister necklaces (to store favourite rocks or other finds!), and made fish out of recycled CDs. If you didn’t get a chance to make one on Sunday, here are some pictures of how they look so you can make your own at home!
Here are some discussion questions:
-What are some ways we can help to care for God’s creation? Why is that important?
-What are some things we can do to lessen our impact on the world? How can we arrange our lives so we remember our commitment to live in this way?
-What are some Bible stories or teachings that show us how to live respectfully and integrated well with other parts of creation?
-How can going to camp or spending time outdoors in other ways help us to feel connected to creation? Can we feel those same things even when we are in the city? Why could it be important to help make sure all kids have access to camp and time in nature?
