Join us this July for Compassion Camp: An At-Home/Virtual VBS! 




Who: Children ages 3-12 (Younger children are welcome but material is designed for preschool through elementary)


When: July 1 - 29


Where: At-Home/Virtually via Zoom & Video Content


Children will discover how:


   Compassion helps us welcome others

   Compassion helps us be brave

   Compassion helps us love ourselves

   Compassion helps us be present with each other

   Compassion gives us a fresh start

How it Works:

  • Each Wednesday there will be a Live Session on Zoom (Choose 10:30am or 5:30pm)

  • If you can’t make the live sessions, you can view the Live Session videos

  • Live Sessions will be about an hour long and will include: 

    • Music

    • Social Interaction

    • Bible Story

    • Age-Level Breakout Sessions

    • Discussion/Reflection

    • Creative Activities


  • Additional Activity Videos will be available to use throughout the week 

    • Crafts

    • Movement (Kids’ Yoga)

    • Compassion in Action 

  • Children’s Sermons during FUMC’s Worship Live Stream on Sundays will serve as the Closing Session for each week, and will also be available as a video. 


A drive through supply pick up will be available on Saturday morning, June 27th from 10am - 12pm. The supply bags will include the printed materials for each week as well as a new set of crayons and some craft supplies. All printed materials will also be emailed to families, so you can print them at home and provide your own supplies if you prefer, or if picking up is not an option for you.


We’ll distribute t-shirts before our final session, the weekend of July 25-26.
