What is MEGA Sports Camp?
It's a week that will make your kids better athletes and FOLLOWERS OF JESUS!  At registration they'll pick basketball, cheerleading or life skills for the week.  Through Rally Time, sports session, huddle time, halftime snacks and closing rally, our kids will be immersed in the life-changing message of the Gospel.  They will also learn through the Scriptures of the Mega themes for each day.  Through thrilling Bible stories and real life sports stories, kids will leave MEGA Sports Camp with a new sense of sportsmanship and a whole new look on the Gospel! Our scripture verse that we will learn, memorize and live out is, "Be king and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." Ephesians 4:32

 

Day 1: GIVE ME THE "T".  Team means we, not me.  (Jesus chooses His team, the disciples).

 

Day 2:  GIVE ME THE "E". Everyone deserves my respect. (Jesus shows everyone respect).

 

Day 3:  GIVE ME THE "A". All of us make mistakes. (Jesus fixes Peter's mistake).

 

Day 4:  GIVE ME THE "M". My attitudes and actions matter. (Jesus forgives). 

 

Day 5:  WHAT DO WE HAVE? Team Spirit! (Jesus promises the best team member- Holy Spirit!)
