Youth Activities from Heather
Compassion helps us see and welcome.
“Compassion gives us a fresh start. By creating fresh starts, we work with God to care for all and participate in the holy work of renewal so all may joyfully gather at the table together, receiving God’s abundance.” (

Live in love and smile!
What is the “Card Project”?
From now until the end of November we will be collecting your pieces of art to create beautiful cards. During the month of December the cards may be purchased through a good will offering. Any money collected will support a local charity (to be determined by children and youth).
Artwork size: 4 ½”x 6½” or 11.5cm x 17cm
Paper: create artwork on white paper
Medium: anything you like to work with (crayons, paint, markers, pencils)
How many can you make: 1-5
Please do not add words (except you signature: your name)

Copies of the artwork will be made to create the cards and the originals will be made into a mural for the Church. 
Dinner time Conversation:
Why are fresh starts important?
Why do you think it’s important to rest? 
Why do you think it’s important to celebrate?
What do we celebrate?
How does this help us share God’s compassion?
Our Bible story is about the Israelites after they were freed from slavery in Egypt. They traveled for many years to the land God promised to them. In this story we learn about an important and wonderful tradition for God’s people. It’s called “Jubilee.” It is a way of starting over. When we are given a fresh start, we see, feel, and trust how God’s abundance (there’s enough for everyone) is meant for all people and creation. As you listen to the story today, think about what it’s like to have a fresh start.

A message for youth and adults
Joyful Spirit,
Your loving hands are always creating freedom, release, and fresh starts!
Help us do the same today by caring for all living things with gentleness and care.
Open us to humbly receive that same care ourselves.
Make our hearts smile and our actions sing with your promise of abundance toward the whole world.
Compassion Camp Sunday
“Compassion Camp Family Services” are online each Sunday at 10:30am. The worship is designed for the whole family. During these gatherings we learn what it means to have compassion for others, ourselves, and the world. We sing, pray, share and listen to God’s word. There are activities to do as a family and ones to share to our wider community. Packages can be dropped off at your home or can be picked up at the Church. These packages will help you get the full experience of “Compassion Camp”. Children, youth and adult volunteers are needed to help with scripture, prayers and skits.
Please contact Heather ( to receive the camp packages.
