The Berean Academy student organization, Christian Action, will be hosting the Fall Would-Be Games on Friday, October 7th. This event is a fundraiser involving the entire high school student body and any Berean family who wants to attend and support student summer missions. The proceeds raised during the evening financially assist students going on summer mission trips and provide the operational budget for Christian Action.
The evening will include a volleyball tournament and an ultimate Frisbee tournament for high school students this year. Would-Be Games provides an opportunity for students currently not involved in athletic competition in volleyball—they “would-be” volleyball players. All high school boys are eligible to play volleyball. In addition, all girls not on the high school volleyball team will qualify for the volleyball tournament. The evening begins at 5:00 p.m. with dinner. Volleyball competitions will start at 5:30 p.m. Following the volleyball tournament, students will have the opportunity to participate in an ultimate Frisbee tournament beginning around 8:30 p.m. This will be the final event of the evening and should conclude around 9:30 p.m.
The money raised from the fall Would-Be Games is used to purchase supplies for Christian Action events throughout the year, and all of the additional proceeds support Berean students going on summer mission trips. All junior high and high school students going on summer mission trips can request money from Christian Action for their trips. We will provide more details regarding this opportunity to students in the spring.
The entire family is invited to enjoy the evening of the Would-Be Games. Admission is $2 for students, $3 for adults, and $7 for families. A meal will be served to start at 5:00 p.m. and can be purchased for $5. The full meal includes a taco or a sloppy joe with chips, a dessert (pie or sheet cake), and a drink.
We look forward to a great evening!
