Today (Thursday) was the last day of ROP’s first week of Summer Day Camp. The theme of this year’s Day Camp is “More than Conquerors”, taken from Romans 8:37. Each day of camp focuses on one sport and one aspect of being a “conqueror” as follows:
- Monday – Soccer – We are more than conquerors when we Practice with Purpose
- Tuesday – Basketball – We are more than conquerors when we Listen to my Leaders
- Wednesday – Volleyball – We are more than conquerors when we are Courageous
- Thursday – Badminton – We are more than conquerors when we Restore our Minds and Bodies
Walter Thompson, ROP’s Director of Children’s Ministries, taught on each of these themes using stories from the life of King David. We thank God for great weather and a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of some disadvantaged but very cute and wonderful kids. We got off to a slow start but by the end of the week we had about 30 kids with a couple more coming every day as word of mouth spread.
We are looking forward to even more kids participating at next week’s Day Camp as the word continues to spread, and we are hoping to be able to provide a third week of Day Camp if we can mobilize just a few more volunteers. So, if you are available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, 6/26 through Thursday, 6/29, and have a heart to bless some pretty awesome kids with the gift of your time and attention, I would encourage you to contact Walter at [email protected] or 720-577-7111. He will be glad to answer your questions and fill you in on all you need to know. And, if you choose to participate, I can assure you of one thing – you will be the one most blessed.
