Who would have ever thought it!? What started as an idea turned into a few kids playing tennis on Sunday afternoons and eventually turned into something beyond our wildest imaginations! Today we had 26 kids of all ages and skill levels hitting the courts with our amazing coaches for an hour of tennis and much more. At the end of our time together we handed our 3 “Gold Balls” to kids who not only played hard but encouraged the other kids on their court. Congrats to Truedale Archer, Unique Douglas, and Edward Jonas. At the end of our time together we took a minute to talk about 1 Corinthians 9:24 where Paul says, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize!” We used the verse to talk to the kids about giving it our all on the court, in the classroom, and at home. God’s Word is truly amazing! You can share it on Sunday morning in the sanctuary, but it’s just as applicable on Sunday afternoon on the court. I hope you enjoy some pictures from our time on the courts.
In His Steps,
