GETTING READY TO RALLY!
All summer long we have been earning bronze, silver, and gold medals during God's Olympics. We've seen that running requires commitment; archery needs focus; gymnasts need balance; weight lifters must have strength; and endurance is essential for swimmers. So, what about Christians? What qualities do we need to live our lives for Jesus? Hebrews 12:1-2 is a good place to start. Join us on Rally Day, September 11 for a big breakfast and a chance to see and hear what KidZone learned this summer.
At the opening ceremony, we proudly marched into the MegaZone with the Bible, Christian flag, the torch, and five rings representing not only a sport, but a theme word. Each week this summer we have had fun with sports that represent some of the character traits of the Christian life. We also learned about early twentieth-century Olympic athlete and missionary to China, Eric Liddell.
Next week we continue our preparations for God's Olympics Closing Ceremony which is on Rally Day, September 11. There is still time to earn gold for memorizing Scripture (Hebrews 12:1-2) and for sharing what we learned with our church family at Big Breakfast. Then, we will proudly process in during the 10am church service to recite Scripture and sing God's praises. Follow our progress each week by checking out the pictures on this Blog!
