LP Sports on Mission
Each year teams from Lake Pointe go out and use KidsGames as a way to reach thousands of children and teach them Christian, Scripture-based value lessons through the a similar format used here in Rockwall. LP Sports is currently involved in Ghana, Washington D.C., and here in Rockwall.
We want you to get involved in these mission opportunities to use KidsGames to establish and grow relationships with God in kids across the globe.
Started as an alternative to sports camp and traditional VBS, KidsGames came to Lake Pointe in 2012 as an innovative way to reach kids for Christ. Now entering our 5th year, KidsGames has grown to serve not only the children of the Rockwall area but as a training location for LP Sports teams to learn how to share KidsGames across the globe.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
Our volunteers play a very active and vital role in our program This is a special opportunity to serve others while building relationships with young children. Volunteers are needed in many different areas, from Elective Leaders to Small Group Leaders.
Washington D.C. | District Church
As the capitol of our great nation, Washington DC boasts some of the highest numbers of poverty and single parent families of any other large city in the United States. Our partner church, the District Church, founded in 2010, seeks to reach the lost and the lonely in this powerful metropolis.
Our LP Sports KidsGames team will partner with District Church in the inner city of Washington DC to reach children who are otherwise forgotten and alone as we share Christ with them through this fun, exciting outreach.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
Currently, a trip is being planned to Washington, DC June 25-30, 2016. This team will introduce and lead KidsGames with the District Church. All you need to do to be part of our team is to love kids and love Jesus—we will teach you everything you need to know about Sharing Christ and Building Believers in Washington, DC through KidsGames.
