Every Living Thing.

Be Loved. Be Kind. Be You.

Are you looking for an inclusive, affirming, grace-filled and fun summer event for your child? If so, we have created Compassion Camp for you and your family. At Compassion Camp, our goal is that children will grow in compassion and empathy for others and themselves all while exploring the Christian faith through hands-on, kid-friendly experiences alongside a community of love and grace.

 

East End United Methodist Church and Eastwood Christian Church invite you to Compassion Camp. This event will be held on June 3-6 from 6:00-7:45 PM at Eastwood Christian Church (1601 Eastland Ave., Nashville, TN. 37206) in partnership with East End United Methodist Church. This event is FREE and open to all children who are 4 years (by June 1) to rising 5th grade.

 

At Compassion Camp, children will discover, experience and explore God’s love and grace and what it means to have compassion and empathy for others, the world and themselves. We hope for children to enjoy hearing stories from the Bible while they grow and learn about how our faith in God forms our lives as people filled with compassion and care. Children will enjoy worship, music, crafts, games and movement as they make friends and memories together.

 

This year's Compassion Camp theme is: "Every Living Thing." Through Compassion Camp: What Every Living Thing Needs, participants will explore what all living things need to live—shelter, food, water, air, and community—and how they can have compassion for the living earth, especially in their local ecosystems. Through awareness, gratitude, wonderment, reciprocity, and kinship, participants will consider how to become co-sustainers and participants in the work of God’s creation. Using Psalm 104 as their grounding text, along with additional supporting scripture, participants will closely examine the interconnectedness of the whole earth—humans alongside the more-than-human world.
