2018 Summer Basketball Camp
According to NBA.com here are some of the 50 greatest players in the history of basketball: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, George Gervin, Magic Johnson, David Robinson, Cassie Elbel, etc… ok, so the last name was forged but we all know in her younger days she could play with the best of them ;) .
Last week Christ Church San Antonio had it’s first basketball sports camp. We were fortunate to have Coach Dunkley come teach us the ways of basketball. He led us in drills that built our dribbling, shooting, passing and teamwork skills. During our bible time we had Luke Evans, Will Young and Alyssa Reimer lead our groups in a time of discussing the love of Jesus. Monday we discussed how God looks at a man’s heart and not what is on the outside (1Samuel 16:7). Tuesday we discussed that whatever we find ourselves doing to give thanks to the Lord (Colossians 3:17). Wednesday we went through 1 Corinthians 15:57-58… that we find victory in Jesus and to stand firm in our belief. On our last day, Thursday, Luke Evans shared the gospel message of Jesus Christ with our children, What a blessing to see so many children hear the good news of Jesus!
A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make it such a big success. We had over 50 kids attend every day. We had leaders, teachers, coaches and youth helpers all working together to make it a great week! We look forward to expanding it and improving it to bring in more children from the community next summer.
