Riptide Olympics Have Begun!

This Sunday we started the Riptide Olympics. Students designed their team flags and the games have begun. Each week we will start the morning with an 'Olympic type' game that will encourage the teams to work together for a grand prize!

Our theme will go along with our teaching series which is based on the life and writings of the apostle Paul. Paul may not have been in the Olympics but he trained and worked hard to be a follower of Jesus.

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever." 1 Corinthians 9:24-25

The race is on!
