We so excited share this mixed age sports program with you. We have designed it to be as easy to use as possible in a

  • a VBS / Holiday Club
  • Backyard / Home Bible club
  • Weekly church event,

The goal of this program is to share the Gospel message with children and introduce them to the Christian life through a sports theme.

Children will learn that God has made them special, but that we have all fallen short of His standard. They will learn that Jesus came to be a substitute for them. Children will then be reminded of Jesus’ call to follow Him and be introduced to living a Christian life. We pray this program will be a blessing to you as you use it at home or at church.

Every session included lesson guide, games, worksheets, coloring pages, story, snacks, crafts and more.

Sessions overview

This program is designed to be used as a five day VBS (Holiday Club). It also comes with some bonus sessions which can be used as follow up. Another idea would be to split the whole program over eight weeks.

1) Triathlon

Lesson Goal: To teach that we are body, mind, and spirit.

Lesson Summary: In triathlon, it is not enough to only being good in one discipline. The Bible says that we have a body, mind, and spirit, which means we have physical health, mental health and spiritual health. It’s important we care for all three.

2) Archery

Lesson Goal: To teach that we miss God’s target on how to live.

Lesson Summary: In archery, we all aim for the bullseye every shot, but we often miss it. We will learn what it means to be a ‘sinner.’ The Bible teaches us that God has a target of how we should live, but we fail to reach it.

3) Football / Volleyball

Lesson Goal: To teach that Jesus took our place

Lesson Summary: In sport, few want to be the substitute and sit on the bench. A substitute is someone who takes the place of someone else. We will learn that Jesus became our substitute and took our punishment.

4) Sailing

Lesson Goal: To teach that we need to set a direction for life.

Lesson Summary: A sailor does not just jump in the boat and hope that the wind blows them in the right direction. They look at the environment around them, check the wind and the weather and then set a direction.

Life is full of things that try to set our direction for us, but we can’t live being blown around by whatever comes in our way (what our friends want to do / what everyone else is doing / what problems we face). We need to set a direction for our life. We need to choose to follow Jesus.

5) Relay

Lesson Goal: To teach that we need to work together 

Lesson Summary: There is no superstar in the relay team; every person there is important and has a vital part of the play. We must pass on what we have received. Jesus calls us to pass on the message of the gospel.


6) Hurdles

Lesson Goal: To teach that God gives us the ability to overcome problems

Lesson Summary: There is always going to be things that get in our way. In the Bible, there is the story of Moses and the Exodus. There is a part where God separates the red sea so that the Hebrew people can walk through the middle of it. There is another part in the Bible that says a man called Peter walked on water. In Isaiah 25:11, the Bible talks about swimming and God has given us the ability to swim.

The point is that we shouldn’t allow anything to get in the way of where God wants us. God always gives us the ability to overcome these things and be in the right place.

7) Marathon

Lesson Goal: To teach that we must press on in our spiritual life and stay faithful

Lesson Summary: Using the famous story of the tortoise and the hare. We will think about the important of perseverance in life and faith.

8) Wrestling

Lesson Goal: To teach that we are in a spiritual battle.

Lesson Summary: We are in a real spiritual battle. We have an enemy who seeks to keep us from God and His will. We will talk about how God have given us the tools to fight.
