Break Free Camp- CCEA 7-13 year olds

Break Free just hosted its first breakdance camp at Calvary Chapel East Anaheim. The camp was held for kids from 7-13 and God blessed us with a tremendous turnout! There were about 80 kids that came and a good turn out of girls showed up. The theme of the camp was Galatians 5:1 " It is for freedom that Christ has set us free..." and we really emphasized the Freedom that Jesus Christ can/does bring into our lives. God really brought a great team together. Childrens ministry leader, Lori Eggenburg, and I (Josh) had a vision for this camp a few months ago. Then Tim (veritaz), Sean, Emily, Shelli, and Liz helped out with the dance instruction which was a huge blessing. ALso my beautiful wife Krista and friend Kelsey, helped make sandwhiches for the team. The camp went from 9am to 4pm and the teaching was broken up by learning the differnt aspects of breaking. Top rock, floor work, Power Moves, and freezes were what we focused on with the dancing. We also broke up into Bible study groups and had each leader go through some of the word about the freedom the Jesus Christ came to give us by His death on the cross and resurrection from the grave! The kids were really into it and seemed to love the entire day. At the end I was able to give a gospel message and a few kids responded to recieve Jesus Christ as personal Lord and savior! Praise God! Then afterward, we had the 7-10 year olds battle the 11-13year olds and they loved it. The day went great and by Gods grace the Lord was glorified!
