This group study for children looks at five character traits of the Christian life using some of the sports from the summer Olympic games to represent those qualities. Through worship, games, snacks, crafts, and other activities, children learn how commitment, focus, balance, strength, and endurance are part of living their lives for Christ.
God's Olympics has been created for use in an informal teaching and learning time. Activities are designed for multiple ages of children rotating through learning centers with crafts, games andsnacks. The worship time is crafted as a total group experience. Written in 2008, but it works great for any summer special program for children -- especially VBS.

We are just finishing up this program in our Children's Department. We have been following the program each Sunday for our Sunday School and Children's Church. The Children have really enjoyed this and we were able to present the material in such a way for the values to really stick with them. In two weeks we will be presenting a wrap up program with the children sharing what they have learned with the entire church. Would love to know if there are other programs out there by this author as this is one of the best programs we have shared with our children at Northview Baptist Church.

I used this study at a spiritual renewal conference for missionary kids in Senegal. I wanted something that was geared to Christian growth since these children were already Christians. This book really delivered! The material contains great teaching points and illustrations and there is plenty of hands on involvement for the kids. At the end of the study one third grader told me this was so much fun, that it should be taught to all the kids in my church in the US.
