Sports Campaign Trip
October 10 – 18, 2022

Target: SCBC members interested in assisting with a Sports Tournament in the Jicamarca community 
Approx. Group Size: 8-10 

The purpose of this trip is to provide sports tournaments for children (soccer), teens (soccer), women (volleyball) and men (soccer).  October 10-14 is a break in the school schedule and is the perfect time to provide opportunities for the residents of Jicamarca.  The tournaments will provide us additional exposure in the church planting community and opportunities to share the gospel with those who may never come to the church to hear it.  It is also a unique opportunity to engage the men of the community who are usually very hard to access due to their work schedules.  Referees for all games will be done by Peruvians.  Our group will fill support roles in addition to serving the spectators through popcorn/snacks and face-painting/balloons.

Additional opportunities will include: extended time with Cristo El Salvador members to encourage them, spending time with the Smith family and other IMB personnel, Missionary Task training, worship services at Cristo El Salvador and Jicamarca.

Vacation Bible School Trip
February 2023

Target: SCBC members interested in working alongside Cristo El Salvador to provide a Vacation Bible School program for children in the Jicamarca community 

Approx. Group Size: 8-10 

February is summer vacation time in Peru and the kids in Jicamarca don’t have much to do.  We will prepare and present a multi-day VBS program for children, ages 3-14.  The program will include Bible stories, games, skits, crafts, music and snacks.  The program will be a joint effort as our team will be mixed with Cristo El Salvador/Jicamarca church members. This is a huge opportunity to interact with children who will take their experiences home to their families and provide the local church with contacts to follow-up with. 

This trip will also include training on the Missionary Task, interaction with the Smith family and other IMB personnel, prayer walking and worship services at Cristo El Salvador and Jicamarca. 

Connecting with God, Connecting with Others, Connecting Others with God

At Swift Creek we are all about making connections. The most important connection is the one we can have with God through faith in Jesus Christ. Once that connection is established we want to make connections in our homes and with the rest of the church family. A strong church is built by people of strong faith and individual homes where God is worshiped and honored. Read More...
