Hi, I’m Amber Smith head coach of the girls in the third through sixth grade Olympian program… and I AM EXCITED. Let me start by telling you a little about myself. I have been married to my amazing husband, Mason Smith, for 9 years this Thursday. God has blessed us with three fun, adventurous, crazy and loving boys: Nolan (6), Jackson (3) and Clark (5 months). Is it any wonder I need GIRL time on Wednesday nights!! I’ve had the privilege of seeing the Word of Life program work from the perspective of student, camper, worker and youth pastor’s wife. With all these different views I have seen how this program can be used to effectively communicate to children the gospel and how to live for Christ.
I accepted God’s free gift of salvation when I was eight years old. However, it was not until I was 14, at a campfire at Word of Life, that I completely surrendered my life to Christ. My continuous growth in Christ can be partly attribute to the Word of Life program instilling in me the importance of a day by day Quiet time with the Lord. While the Olympians program as a whole is awesome; I am most excited about using their Quiet Time book to plant in your daughter a desire to get into God’s Word daily!
This year we will use Bible study, games, discipleship and encouragement to spur your daughter to excellence! Though our church has changed programs our attitude toward challenging children with the truth of the gospel in a fun and interactive way hasn’t. We encourage each clubber to purchase a Quiet Time journal. This is a tool which will greatly enhance their relationship with the Lord. The cost is $25.00 and this can be purchased from the club secretary in the church foyer. I would also appreciate it if you would take the time to register your child at the above link on this page.
While we work hard to make Wednesday nights a fun filled two hours for your daughter we could not fit everything we girls like to do in that time. So watch for updates for our Super Saturday, Progressive dinner, Father/Daughter Banquet & Mommy & Me Tea. These will be flagged on the calendar and you will receive reminders as they approach. Check out the calendar for updates and information often.
I believe this new adventure will be awesome. Our goal is for your daughter to feel loved, motivated and encouraged.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to make this experience better for you or your daughter. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amber Smith on Facebook.
