#1-14 Evangelistic Event (Sports Camp) Church Plant
This is the 4th year this church plant has hosted a week long kids program called Kids Games and it is very loved by the community. Kidsgames is a sports/fun activities camp where life skills such as honor, integrity, selflessness etc. are taught using Bible stories. A team is very much needed of at least 15 members capable of leading kids. The team should be spiritually and physically able to teach and re-emphasize the daily lessons through the routine of the daily activities. This is an incredible event that God has opened the door for the church to use in their community as they are in one of the most unchurched areas of the country. Thank you for your help! The team is needed for July 2014. The program is 8-3 Monday through Friday. The team can stay at the church and there is a kitchen. This takes place in Weymouth, MA (South of Boston).
