At Club Christ, our summer program is unique because each week a team from a different church in Las Vegas comes to serve. It is a great way for more people to learn about us and see the work we do. The first week at the Las Vegas Center we had a team of interns from Grace City Church volunteer and they were an awesome group to kick off the program! One of the interns, Chevy, shares about his experience.
Last month, a group of us from church were able to be part of an amazing thing happening in Las Vegas! What is it you ask? Club Christ! The program is truly life-changing for the kids and their families, AND even those who volunteer. We were only there for a week, but in that short amount of time, it was outstanding to see the children’s desire to learn, both academically and spiritually.
During the week I taught writing and math, and performed in a Bible skit on the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. The kids are writing their own books this summer and so we were there to help them choose a topic and begin brainstorming ideas. They are mind-blowing: so smart and full of wonderful ideas, with way-creative imaginations, plus handwriting better than my own! Their writing topics included adventures with Batman, traveling into the future, and pirates searching for gold. When I taught math, kids were completing the math worksheets in seconds, faster than I could check their answers. With so much spare time for fun, we had them do problems that I thought would be hard (23 x 187), but with ease they finished, and I had to come up with bigger and bigger numbers (22,583 x 14,873) which they could solve in minutes!
The kids we served are truly amazing and respectable, well-rounded and intelligent young kids, just ready to be poured into with the love of Christ and to be trained as champions for Christ! How amazing is that?! Keep it up Club Christ!
