2018 Theme – In The Game

Theme 2018 – Get In The Game

The 2018 Theme ‘Get In The Game’ is based on Hebrews 12:1-2

1Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.


The theme will discuss the theme ‘living the Christian life’. In the bible Paul frequently illustrated the Christian lifestyle as being similar to running in a race. It ties in nicely to an Olympic/Commonwealth games or any type of sports related theme (In 2018 there is the Winter Olympics and the Commonwealth Games).

In the Bible, our lives are often compared to a race. Our theme verse for the 2018 GEMS and Cadet year is Hebrews 12:1-2. We are instructed in our theme verses to throw off everything that impedes our racing and run with perseverance. In verse 2, we are instructed to fix our eyes on Jesus. In most sports, participants do better and have the stamina they need, when they can visualise the end of the race or winning the game. When we focus on Jesus, it helps us persevere to the end of our lives as we do our best for him.


A theme pack contains a leader’s guide (with all the answers 😊) and a workbook for the GEMS and Cadets. The Theme Discussions are based on the book of Mark.
