God First Basketball Camp

On July 20, 2021, First Baptist Church held its annual basketball camp. Approximately 50 students from 1st-7th grades attended the camp.

Northwestern State University, Coach Mike McConathy along with several members of his coaching staff and players led the young athletes through drills and activities to help them improve in the fundamentals of basketball. Most importantly, the coaches provided Biblical truth throughout the day.

Coach Cox shared with the students how he was baptized at First Baptist when he was a small child and living in Coushatta.

Toward the end of the day, the students competed in five competitions and the winners were awarded trophies. All athletes were given a t-shirt, medal, and lunch for attending the camp.
