This year The Loft Ministries was excited to partner with Montrose Evangelical Free Church as the host of Upward Soccer Camp. The camp drew 140+ kids from K-7th grade from Montrose, PA to New York. Throughout the week campers learned all kinds of soccer skills from passing and shooting to trick moves that they could pull off on the field. In the afternoon the campers spent time hanging out in the pool, fishing, doing crafts and shooting archery.
Even greater than all the fun, each camper heard the best news of all! Nothing is better than hearing tons of children shouting out the good news that "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace through the redemption found in Christ Jesus, whom God presented as the sacrifice for sin, to be received by faith." Romans 3:23-25. Please continue to join us in praying that the seeds of the Gospel that were planted throughout the week would grow and transform the lives of each camper.
The week was capped off with the big tournament night on Friday night. The Loft hosted and fed close to 500 people as friends and family came to watch their children play in the tournament.
Thanks to all of you who prayed for The Loft and all the campers throughout the week. Also, a special thanks to all our volunteers who helped with food service, coaching and crowd control. Without all of you we could have never pulled this one off!
