Everyday Heroes

This week the First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City was converted into the site of a high energy Christian music camp experience that invites kids from first to seven grade to learn and perform a musical in just one week. The camp also features Bible studies, recreation, and afternoon fun filled field trips. Kids from within our church walls are joined by kids from across our community for this incredible annual event put together by our music and children’s ministries.

The theme for this year is Everyday Heroes. The kids got to put the theme into practice by spending one of their afternoons working at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Over the course of a couple of hours the kids handled 342 cases of food, for a combined weight of 11,457 pounds. They were building Emergency Boxes and help put together a total to 8,813 meals for people in our community. While tonight we will see their grand musical performance these kids have already proven themselves everyday heroes. I could not be more proud of them.

Grace and Peace, Tom
