Rev. Carla introduces this week's Compassion Camp Scripture, Mark 12:28-31.
Our summer intergenerational interterm begins Monday, July 13, and lasts five weeks. "Intergenerational" means it involves everyone with many different ways to engage. Compassion Camp is all-virtual and, except for Zoom for 7, can be completed at your own pace. Sign up for Zoom for 7 to participate in a small group discussion of the theme/Bible story of the week.
We invite you to watch throughout the week as our Bible stories unfold through art, yoga, music and worship.
Each week we will focus on a different way to experience compassion:
The week will start with a Facebook Live video 1pm Monday to introduce that week’s theme and music. On the website you will then be able to find videos teaching the Bible Story, Create & Play, Movement/Yoga, and Compassion in Action sections. These videos will also be emailed out on Tuesday. At 1pm Thursday there will be a Facebook Live video to review the week and to share your pictures and stories from Compassion Camp. Lastly, Sunday Worship services will focus on our weekly Bible story.
If you would prefer to have less screen time with Compassion Camp, you can download the full Family Pack from our website. The Family Pack has the written instructions for each of the weekly activities, even yoga! Families with Elementary aged kiddos will also be getting a packet of coloring pages and song sheets via snail mail.
You can find all the information about Compassion Camp on our website. Downloadable materials are available here.*

Compassion Camp is our virtual Summer Intergenerational Interterm being launched July 13. There are activities for kids, teens, families and adults. Look for information in the July Placard, coming soon, and of course at plymothucc.org/compassion.
Zoom for 7 is the adult-focused segment of Compassion Camp, although all activities are for folks of all ages. Zoom for 7 (the "seven" refers to the number of households) is a small discussion group that meets weekly for five weeks to discuss the topic of the week. Each week, groups will be given the theme for the week, the Bible story, and a list of questions to discuss.
Sign-ups open on Friday, July 3! Watch your email! There are a limited number of Zoom for 7 discussion groups and, of course, space in each one is limited. Here are the days and times for the groups:
We ask that you select the day/time that works best for you and stay with this group for the entire five weeks. Questions? Email me.
