Sports Academy Holiday Club 2016

Sports Academy 2016We had a super Holiday Club for 4 mornings, writes Gill Holder. The puppets, games, challenges, memory verses, craft, prayer and ‘Mr Fit’  kept the 17 -20 children enthusiastically engaged. Many parents came for the final Thursday evening session.  The material was based on the life of David, and included themes such as our unique value to God, doing the right thing even when it is hard and God keeps us safe.

Many thanks to all the volunteers, especially our three  teenage  leaders and all those who supported us behind the scenes and in prayer. Have a look at some of the many photos of the event (there are even more on the SPSJ Facebook page: click here for more…
