Connecting Kids with God's Creation

Your kids are out of school for the summer. What to do? What to do?

Get them outside and teach them about God's beautiful creation - Nature! 

Don't let this time of beautiful weather and lack of homework go to waste indoors. There's no better time than now. 

For ideas on how to make the most of this season with your kids and keep it environmentally-friendly, check out some of our past blog posts:
Summer Fun!
Ask Deanna: Field Games for Kids
Choose Reusable...or at least Compostable

Or get your hands on one of the resources below. Many of these are suggested books and curricula for children and youth on Earth Ministry's website, but some are new.

Connect with your kids and God in nature this year and have a blessed summer!

Sabbath-Keeping and Creation Care

HammockIn a couple of weeks, Earth Ministry will be releasing the summer issue of Earth Letter, our quarterly mini-journal and newsletter. The theme for this summer is Sabbath -- how our Sabbath-keeping behaviors can care for God's creation.
