This week, Norwalk’s First United Methodist Church kept its vacation Bible school students outside for Mega Sports Day at Sofios Family Park.

Children from age 4/pre-school age to those entering sixth-grade get to spend the beginning of the day playing soccer, flag-football, volleyball, baseball and other field day activities. The day also included lunch/snack times with three devotional “rally” sessions mixed throughout, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The rallies were led by Debi Helton, decked in referee garb. Her granddaughter Callie, 13, played “Mega” the mascot during the week.

“Teenagers or kids (who) are a bit older can participate as helpers,” said DeAnn McKillips, the church’s Christian education director.

“And kids don’t have to be from our church to be a part of this,” added Sarah Christophel, director of Mega Sports Day. “We have kids from a bunch of different churches here today.”

Following the last round of sports-activities, the students, separated by age group and colored t-shirts gathered at the pavilion for the final rally of the day.
