Hatching Chicks

On Day 3 of Farm Camp we will be talking about the Creation Within. We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works!

Creation is continuously occurring all around us. Everywhere we look, we are surrounded by birth and renewal. On the farm, we get a front-row seat to many of these miracles. We purchased an egg incubator this year to incubate and hatch our own chicken eggs. No matter how many barnyard births we see, it never ceases to thrill and amaze us each time we see new life springing forth: God’s handiwork.

God’s creation doesn’t begin and end with the natural world—He is continuously creating within each one of us. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17) God uses circumstances in our life to shape us into the image of His son: a new life, a new creation!

While campers are here for Farm Camp, we’ll be hatching eggs in our new incubator to illustrate this point.

Registration is currently open for Farm Camp 2019 (June 24-28). Please watch our video overview if you are interested!


Farm Camp Creative Projects

Rope Rainbow craft at Farm Camp

I have been playing and dreaming and pinning all sorts of fun ideas for Farm Camp. This is a personal favorite: the rope rainbow. I have seen these all over online, and I love how each one turns out so different and unique.

Planning for Farm Camp has been so exciting. I am beginning to see how each day will feel, and how it will all come together. Our week this summer is going to be so much fun.. the crafts, the teachings, the meals, and the farm projects are all really varied and creative. This is the camp I would have LOVED when I was in high school.

We will be making these rope rainbows on day three, the day we focus on how we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ to do good works. We will spend time discussing how we all have creation within us, made with a purpose by a loving and thoughtful God, and how we might share our unique loves and passions with the world.

This little rainbow is a hopeful sign to me of all that is to come!
