Summer bible camp a blast

A group of local youngsters learned a bit about Jesus Christ, and a lot about teamwork, last week at the Lake Cowichan Christian Fellowship Church.

A group of local youngsters learned a bit about Jesus Christ, and a lot about teamwork, last week at the Lake Cowichan Christian Fellowship Church.

During a free week-long bible camp at the church for kids aged 6 to 12, various games and activities took place, with an underlying theme of teamwork.

“Sports is a great theme. It went so well, we might do this again next year,” pastor Terry Hale said. “It’s being a part of a team – following the coach, who is Jesus.”

On Friday morning’s final bible camp get-together at the church, kids played soccer, wordplay games, and sang a few songs. When the Gazette stopped in, kids were singing a song about Jesus’s support, as a leader.

“Never give up, cause he’s always there,” the kids sang.

“Nobody’s a superstar – we all work together,” Hale said, of the week’s activities.

The week-long bible camp’s success was thanks to quite a few people, Hale said, with prizes for the kids donated by local businesses, and plenty of volunteers coming forward to help out.
