Defiance Community Churches announces the all new “Kidspirit” summer events.

The first of this series of events will be held on Wednesday, July 12 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at St. John United Church of Christ., Webster St, Defiance.

Children in grades 1 – 5 will learn about working together on God’s Team! They will rotate through four sports-themed lessons – football, volleyball, basketball, and baseball – to teach kids about using their talents and abilities for God.

Memory Verse:

 “From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” – Ephesians 4:16 (NIV)

The Lessons:
Huddle Up (Football) – Kids will learn that, on God’s team, every player has to work together.

Ace the Serve (Volleyball) – Kids will learn that, on God’s team, the most valuable player is the one who serves others

Rebound (Basketball) – Kids will learn that, on God’s team, it’s never too late for God to transform a missed shot into a win. 

Squeeze Play (Baseball)

 – Kids will learn that, on God’s team, players stick with God even when the game gets a little tight.
