2019 Curriculum : Peace Works
PEACE WORKS: Empowering the Next Generation of Peacemakers!
Peace is a prayer for some and a life’s work for others. It’s a blessing we share with others and a longing within each of our hearts. Scripture is filled with the stories of peace and justice and camp is the perfect place to share them. Peace isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth the effort because we know that peace works!
Peace Works, the newest summer camp curriculum resource from InsideOut, provides everything you need to produce a fun, enriching, spiritual, and biblically-based camp experience for campers of all ages. From Bible studies about the biblical call for justice and peacemaking to learning about how other cultures name and express peace around the world, Peace Works will educate and empower your campers to become peacemakers in their communities. Creative arts projects such as peace cranes and peace poles will help your campers express their personal hopes for peace and connect them to larger movements for peace around the world such as the Peace Crane Project and The World Peace Prayer Society, the organization helping create peace poles around the globe.
The Dakotas Camp and Retreat ministry is part of the ministry of the Dakotas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. With two camps in South Dakota and one in North Dakota, we offer Christian hospitality and places apart where all individuals may experience God’s grace and love, and grow in discipleship. Close friendships and Christian community typically grow quickly at camp where lives are positively transformed.
In addition, we partner with local churches as we work together to continue to grow disciples and leaders that are making a difference in their schools, churches, and communities. Thank you for the prayers and support as we continue the journey of making disciples for Jesus Christ.
