Church:

I pledge allegiance to my Church, and to my Lord upon Whom it is built. I will love my pastor, and all the members; and will faithfully support my church with my attendance, money, service and prayers.

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:14

Sometimes, Jesus, it is hard to follow You, for I want to do what I want to do. But when the Devil tempts me to stray, Oh, this is what I’ll say ...

I’ll raise my torch up to the sky, I’ll fly my banner way up high, I’ll follow Jesus right behind, I will run the race.

I’ll be a Champion for my Lord, I’ll conquer temptation with His Word. I’ll challenge all those who have never known His grace, to accept God’s gift by faith.

What you do need is a program that is based upon biblical principles. We believe that the Word of God makes the difference in the life of a child.

Psalm 1:2

Joshua 1:8

Colossians 3:16

Internalizing Scripture to connect to life’s needs and problems is essential for a growing, obedient Christian.

The systematic memorization of Scripture will help a believer to sin less, witness more and encourage others.

The verses that the children are asked to memorize come right out of the lessons. This will help reinforce what they are taught in the lesson. Each verse also has a question that goes with it to help tie the verse to everyday living.

All verses are on a verse card in their student book along with the books of the Bible they are to memorize.

Grades 1 and 2 memorize 12 verses each year. Grades 3 and 4 memorize 18 verses each year. Grades 5 and 6 memorize 24 verses each year.

The purpose is not quantity, but quality. Children are not only to learn the verse but also to remember it and how it applies to their lives.

Sin less. Witness more. Encourage others.

The Olympian Christian Service Manual is designed to encourage students to get involved in a variety of opportunities to share their faith.

Matthew 28:19

1 Peter 4:10

Hebrews 10:24

Acts 1:8

Engrafting the Word of God in lives to the point that it is demonstrated in compassion and care for others.

Direct and equip children in various avenues of serving God through individual and group evangelistic and service projects.

Each child is encouraged to participate in Christian service activities. The Christian Service manual has 30 individual services and 24 group opportunities. A Challenger needs to do six a year; a Conqueror, nine; and a Champion, twelve.

Develop a habit of serving God through others. Sense the joy that comes in serving others. Have the privilege of leading others to Christ.

An incentive program that is creative and fun awaits your children. As you look through the next few pages, you will find many different ways to reward the children for being faithful to biblical principles. You can put together the awards that you want to make your program fun and exciting.

Every Olympian needs to get their Olympian student book (which includes their Quiet Time and verse card). In order to encourage the children and inform parents, a progress chart especially designed for Olympians is located inside each front cover.

The Olympian Record/Award Sheet also serves as an individual record sheet for the coach. As you peel off stickers to put on the manual, you also write down the date on the sticker sheet. This will automatically show you their progress.

On the back of this sheet there is a place to put name, address and other vital information about the children, as well as a place to keep track of Olympian attendance. This will greatly simplify the paperwork for the coach.

Challenger

  • 3 summer pins

  • 3 winter pins

Conqueror

  • 3 summer pins

  • 3 winter pins

Champion

  • 3 summer pins

  • 3 winter pins

Each year a child can earn three award pins— one for bronze level, silver level and gold level.

The pins alternate from summer to winter each year. There are 18 pins in all to collect!

Children can place these pins on their backpack or Bible cover. (See back cover for pictures.)

What parent doesn’t enjoy putting something positive about their child on their refrigerator? These are certificates you can present as a child accomplishes each level. A great idea is to do this in a church service, so you can give praise in front of everyone!

This is a great way to keep all the awards that a child has won throughout the year. Children can place the patch, medal and pins all in this beautiful box for display or as a keepsake.

Olympian bronze, silver, and gold medals are available to reward children for being faithful throughout the year. These are beautiful medals with a place to write the date and name of the Olympian on the back. The ribbon comes with it in the color of their appropriate group.

Children love getting trophies. If a child is faithful in earning a gold medal for six years, they can earn the Steadfast Trophy. There is also a trophy for two and four years of faithfully earning gold medals.
