Series Memory Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Main Point: I can be a leader who celebrates others!
Bible Story: David and Jonathan, I Samuel 15, 16, 18, 20, II Samuel 9

During Camp Wannastay we’re learning about leadership – setting a example for others by what you say and what you do. This week, we learned that leaders celebrate others. We read about how Jonathan, who would’ve been the rightful heir to his father Saul’s throne, celebrated with his friend David when he was anointed as the new king of Israel. It would’ve been easy for Jonathan to be upset and demand his rights but he was a leader, put his desires secondary, and celebrated David.

Talk with your family about opportunities you’ve had to celebrate others’ success and how you handled them. Discuss situations where your kids may have the chance to celebrate the success of others and ask God to give you the courage to do so.

This past weekend at camp we continued learning about Deborah and how she was a leader who let others go first. Whether it’s giving up the last chocolate cupcake or letting a sibling choose the movie to watch, it’s hard to let others go first! But your child can be a leader just like Deborah!

This week, we received a camp postcard from our friend Red Rabbit. Make sure your child wears RED and joins us in Quest this weekend to celebrate Red Rabbit Day!

Camp Canteen
Join us in helping your child learn Hebrews 13:7, our camp memory verse. Children can recite this verse each week during Camp Wannastay to collect a prize from the Camp Canteen.

Remember your leaders (point to head and say “bing”)
who taught you the word of God. (open hands like a book)
Think of all the good (two thumbs up)
that has come from their lives, (spread arms wide)
and follow the example (cup hands around mouth while whispering)
of their faith. (shout and pump fist in the air)

When we read the Bible, we can use this verse to help us be like the leaders we learn about. Practice your verse with your camper then ask your child to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend:

  1. Remember: Who was the leader you learned about at Camp Wannastay this week?
  2. Think: Did Deborah let others go last or first to help win the battle?
  3. Follow: Can you be a leader like Deborah and let others go first?

Series Memory Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Main Point: I can be a leader who includes others!
Bible Story: Nehemiah Rebuilds the Walls, Nehemiah 1-3; 4:1-6; 6:15-16; 12:27, 43

During Camp Wannastay we’re learning about leadership – setting an example for others by what you say and what you do. This week, we learned how Nehemiah included others in the rebuilding of Jerusalem’s walls. One of the most important parts of leading is being willing to include others. Often, it’s easy to think it’s easier to just do things yourself, but including others not only gives them a chance to participate but also teaches you how to lead.

With your family this week, talk about opportunities you have to include others and ways you can do that. Pray for the courage and humility to do that and the wisdom in leading others.

Series Memory Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. I Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
Main Point: I can be a leader who shows respect!
Bible Story: David Shows Respect, I Samuel 17

During our series Camp Wannastay, we’re learning about leadership – setting an example for others by what you say and what you do. This week, we learned about one of the greatest leaders in the Bible, King David, and how showing respect is an important part of being a leader. We saw how David didn’t just show respect when he was a king, but he started even when he was just a boy.

With your family this week, talk about different ways you can show respect, not only to those “above” you, but to everyone around you. And make sure to get back next week for another fun time at Camp Wannastay!
