Five Weeks of Videos & Activities

Compassion Camp is a "Virtual Vacation Bible School" where kids and their families will explore what it means to have compassion for others, ourselves, and the world. We hope that PazNaz families with kids age 4 through exiting 5th graders will participate in this with us! Unlike a traditional VBS that happens all in one week, this program will be spread out over 5 weeks.

Each Week Will Include:
  • Lesson - A lesson video from Julie Abajian.
  • Movement - A movement video, kids yoga with a guided meditation, from Evelyn and Teri Thoen.
  • Craft - A craft video from Junia Coe-Renner.
  • Music & Memory - A scripture and song video from Pastor Ali Deckard.

Missionary Giving

Help Support Greg & Christina Miller

During Compassion Camp, we are collecting gifts for Greg and Christina Miller, who are Nazarene missionaries in Malawi, Africa. Last year during VBS, we raised almost $900 to purchase a field for the community where the Millers minister. This year, we are hoping to raise several hundred dollars to purchase a pump to help with year-round farming, or some other project.

Thank you for your gift to this beautiful ministry!
