Soccer Camp & VBS Recap!

We have another year in the books and what an amazing year is was. We had a record 60 kids this year! What a blessing to have so many eager to learn more about soccer and their Savior. And even though there were so many more campers, we had a very respectful and loving group. They listened attentively, were kind to one another, learned quickly, and had a blast!

Soccer Camp featured many drills that train the essential skills of soccer like dribbling, passing and shooting. We also played games that worked those skills while being a lot of fun! After two hours of running around and playing, we take a break to eat a delicious smorgasbord of a snack, sing some silly and some seriously grace-focused songs, and then talk about Jesus. This year we talked about finding Jesus at ALL costs because he is that much more amazing than anything else in our life. After devotion, we headed out for a last half-hour of scrimmage time to practice the skills we had been working on so that we could play the game of soccer!

After three days of Soccer Camp, we moved to our home base here at 31 N. Park and began our two day Vacation Bible School portion of the week. What that meant was an opening devotion about the focus of the day, some silly songs to get us moving, and some Jesus-focused songs to help us voice our confidence in Him! Afterwards, we broke into groups to dig deeper into God’s Word. Then we played kickball or duck duck goose outside, made some amazing crafts, ate more delicious goodies, and played some more big games outside. We closed with another wrap up devotion and said goodbye!

It was a fun-filled week with lots of things to take home to practice, to show family and friends, to study, and to talk about! I pray that it was as fun for everyone who came as it was for me. I was sad when everyone went home!

Thank you to all who helped make our week so fun for everyone who came. Thank you to the parents who sent your kids to be a part of our week. Thank you, Lord, for blessing our Soccer Camp & VBS week! And thank you Jesus for all you have done for us so that we can proudly share the good news you have given to us and to all!

…I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ. Philippians 3:8-9

In His service,
