The Sports and Wellness Ministry exists to teach kids and adults how to play fairly and learn respect for authority, all while understanding that God is more interested in how we play than the game’s outcome.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”  1 Corinthians 10:31
