Holiday Club 2013 was a roaring success...
Holiday Club 25-28 June 2013
What Makes a Hero?
Love, Courage, Reverence, Wisdom, Humility, Righteousness, Endurance, Conviction, Sacrifice, Servanthood, Hope, Compassion, Obedience, Assurance, But most of all, Faith; which is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
By the grace of God, Holiday Club 2013 was a tremendous blessing. We studied the lives of four great heroes centered on the unbending faith of each of these men. What we discovered was that faith is built on the promises of Christ as seen in the life of Father Abraham, faith is built on a relationship with Christ clearly illustrated by the life of the Apostle Paul, faith is the only way to Christ like Martin Luther realized, and faith is being on mission with Christ as we learn from David Livingstone.
The children had lots of fun every day with theme-related games, crafts, and Scripture memory. We praise God for the opportunity presented to us and pray that the Lord will cause the seed that was sown during these four days to grow and bring many to repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
All of us were challenged in the spirit of Joshua 1:9 to have a strong and fearless faith in our great and all-powerful God. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
A big thank you to all who volunteered supported and donated. May the Lord bless you!
And may God give us the grace to follow the example to follow these men and women of whom it is said: “They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated--of whom the world was not worthy--wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.”
To God be the glory!
