WELCOME TO WEEK 1
ARGGHHHH! Welcome to camp, fellow pirates. We are so EXCITED you are joining our pirate ship this week as we set sail on the open water of SPARGA!
Bear with us as we face treacherous storms and the scorching hot sun. Come along on our trips and sing a pirate song. WE NEED YOU TO HELP US and join us this week for the exciting adventure ahead! Use your creativity to complete the task at hand. Engage with other pirates by submitting what you create and it will be put in our showcase. We will face the challenges of being pirates together, as not only a team but as a FAMILY! Pirates MUST stick together!
This Week’s Memory Verse
This week our memory verse is John 3:16-17.
It says “For God so loved the world that he gave is one and only son (Jesus) that whoever believes in him (Jesus) will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his son (Jesus) into the world to condemn the world, but the save the world through Jesus.”
Feel free to download the pictures to help you memorize the verse, then send in a video of you saying it!
This Week’s Challenge
Avast, ye scurvy dogs! In these waters, we be talkin’ like pirates! Batten down the hatches, hoist the jolly roger, and set sail! Adventure awaits!
Using our handy guide to pirate speech, and any of your own personal experience on the high seas, you’ll be able to talk like a proper pirate in no time. For our first weekly challenge, film yourself talking like a pirate and send it in to us! Feel free to get into costume too!
