Digging Deeper 2023

The NC campus was buzzing during this year’s Digging Deeper event on April 21. It was a full day of fun, laughs, and activities. Open to all elementary-aged students from NC, nearby Christian schools, and homeschool students from preschool through eighth grade, the stands were nearly at capacity!

Beginning the day with a welcome, worship, and a morning devotion, students then quickly split into groups and transitioned to stations located all across the NC campus. Each station was unique and catered to each age group. Stations were led by individuals from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Timberlake Ranch Camp, and Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF). We also had stations where students were able to run through basketball drills and games, led by NC’s own basketball coaches; wrestling games and techniques, led by Greg Smith; and sports medicine practices taught by Dr. Nate Krug. Students also had the opportunity to play knocker ball and race pedal cars, led by Caleb Pongo.

While these events were entertaining, and active, and taught the students many different lessons, the highlight of the day was the guest speaker, the one-and-only KC Wolf, the mascot for the 2023 Super Bowl-winning team the Kansas City Chiefs. KC Wolf (Dan Meers) spoke to the students about the A-B-C of Success where he explained the importance of attitude, behavior, and character. He even took a moment to let a student try on the wolf costume. 

Thank you to all who came to participate in this fun-filled day and to all who worked to pull this day together. This event would not have been possible without the planning, organization, and dedication of each and every volunteer, station leader, and NC staff member. After a Digging Deeper event of this magnitude, everyone is excited to see what next year has in store!
