MEGA SPORTS CAMP:  Our Mega Sports Camp is Saturday, June 10, from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M.  The theme is Conquer the Day which is based on the scripture Romans 8:37.  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  In between the sports sessions, we will have rallies and huddle times where students will hear scripture, true inspirational stories, Bible stories, and devotions.  The Glory of God Christian Fellowship will also join us in this outreach effort!  Please pray as we plan and prepare for this event.   Pray now that we will reach many children in our community!
