This Saturday (August 25), FSC will join STEP in running the Gilpin Games for the families and kids of the neighborhood. The kids will get to participate in a sports camp and receive lunch and school supplies at the end of the day. This is an excellent opportunity for us to be present in the community and to serve its people. Here's a breakdown of the schedule: 1o-11 Set up 11-11:30 First sports rotation 11:30-12 Second sports rotation 12-12:15 Speaker 12:15-12:45 Lunch 12:45-1 Pass out backpacks with school supplies 1-2 Clean up
If you stay the entire time (which you don't have to), that's only four hours of service - not a whole lot considering what it's giving the kids: a safe place to play, lunch, and a head start for the coming school year.
Please consider coming out to join us. Dress to play and be sure to bring water and sunscreen. If you can't make it, remember to pray for the event - the weather, the volunteers, but the kids most of all.
I'll leave you with the verse on STEP's web site, a good one to keep in mind when thinking about this Saturday:
"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ." -Philemon 6
