Conversation Starters: Compassion vs. Expendability

Posted by Phil

Psalm 139:1-6,13-18

Sanctity of Human Life Lesson; God values us, has a plan for us, is with us

Conversation Starters

How can you keep this conversation going at home? Try bouncing some of these questions around at the dinner table, as you’re driving your kids to school or an activity, or even while you’re shopping together:

For Preschoolers

• Have you ever done something that made one of your friends say they didn’t want to be your friend anymore? How did that make you feel?

• Do you know that God loves you no matter what? How does THAT make you feel?

For School-Age

• [If you have a pet] What are all the things we have to do to take care of our pet? Why do we do them?

• What are some ways God takes care of animals in nature? Do you know that people are much more important to God than animals are?

For Students

• Psalm 139:16 says, “All my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began.” What does that tell you about your future? About how God cares for the unborn?

Converation Starters: What Are You Good At?

Posted by Phil

Wouldn’t it be easier if you were good at everything? Have you ever thought about how boring life would be if everyone was good at everything? It’s March, basketball is in the air. What if every human was equally good at basketball. This is not the way that our creator designed it…thank goodness. We are designed to be unique and special – good at some things, and not so good at other things. Use this concept and some of the questions below to talk with your kids this month. We will be praying for you here at Camp!

For Preschoolers
Let’s name all the helpers in our church. Not just teachers, but helpers in the parking lot, people who keep the building clean, and people who print the bulletins. Let’s thank God for all the helpers in our church.

For Children
Did you know that every Christian has at least one spiritual gift? What do you think a spiritual gift is?
Do you know what yours are? (If your child has made a profession of faith)

For Students
Do you think it’s more important for Christians to help other Christians inside the church, or people outside the church? Or are both equally important?
What volunteer positions in our church do you think you would be good at?
