Foundry Methodist Church, 5401 Broadway Ave., Great Bend, is offering “Mega Sports Camp: Beyond the Gold” as a fun Vacation Bible School where kids in grades 1-6 can learn more about sports and God’s love.
This program shows kids how physical disciplines can have a spiritual impact. Lessons focus on teamwork, perseverance, respect, strategy and sacrifice.
Sessions will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. starting Monday, July 16, and continuing through Friday, July 20.
“We want to give kids the chance to learn more about sports, discover character-building concepts, and have a whole lot of fun,” said Foundry’s pastor, the Rev. Kevin Baxter. Kids can choose baseball, basketball, soccer or cheer leading as their focus for the camp.
“It doesn’t matter if they’ve played all their life or just started yesterday, Mega Sports Camp helps kids improve their skills,” Baxter said. All sorts of drills and practice games will get kids focused on the fundamentals that make athletes great. Plus, Mega Sports Camp creates a positive and encouraging environment that pumps up their confidence and self-esteem.
Between sports sessions, coaches lead in songs, tell stories, and do cool object lessons that help character-building themes take hold in kids’ hearts. And most importantly, kids will discover God’s great love for them, Baxter said.
