THE HOLIDAY CLUB The Olympics in Rio visited Bankfoot then Luncarty in August, our participants were aged 4 to 80 and 30-40 people joined in each day, most of them children. Thank you to everybody involved including people who prayed for us, lent us equipment and donated snacks and many other essential things. Each day included warm up, craft, messy games, songs, drama, team games, snack and a story. The bible story was acted out with the hearers and often involved fishing nets, water pistols, hats and stunts. The Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio reminded us that everybody is welcomed by Jesus. The theme for the day was in an Olympic ring and we were all invited to FOLLOW Jesus, CARE for people as Jesus did, see how AWESOME Jesus is and hear athletes at the games talk about their inspiration. We saw how Peter trusted Jesus and we played TRUST games and we discovered how we can GROW in the days after Holiday Club like seeds in good soil.
Karen Kelman our youth worker led a small team of adults, assisted by some very capable teenagers who did a brilliant job. As our theme song reminded us regularly “with God’s help, we can reach our goal”.
