Set Out On a Safari
Crossings Kids in 2018 is going on a Safari—a biblical safari. Join us as we travel to Luke chapter 15. In Luke 15, Jesus presents to us a world of lost things—a lost son, a lost sheep, and a lost coin. Like the lost son, we do things in our own way. Like the lost sheep, we think we know the way when we don’t. Like the lost coin, we need to be found.
Return to the Father
The good news is that Jesus uses stories like these parables to teach us that we are lost and that we need to return to our Father, who is seeking for us. These parables teach us that we are nothing without Jesus and that it is through a relationship with him that we can come back to the Father. It is our hope that students will leave camp in 2018 knowing that Jesus cares deeply for them and has provided a way for them to be found by God.
Celebrate Lost Things Found
We want to join the characters in Luke 15 and celebrate lost things found. In fact, we want to celebrate that those who believe in Jesus were once a lost people who now have been found by Jesus: “It was fitting to celebrate and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and he is alive; he was lost, and is found” (Luke 15:32).
