A Note on Our Tuesday Night Basketball Outreach
Tuesday Night Basketball started because a young man from Bible Club had become too old to attend and asked if there was another outlet for his age group to continue meeting during the week. He suggested opening the gym. After discussion, prayer, and laying down some ground rules, the gym was opened each Tuesday evening at 6pm. On the first night, this young man and four of his friends came to play. On the second night, ten young men came to play. Currently, we spend Tuesday evenings with 20-30 young men, typically aged 15 years and older (sometimes younger guys come as well).
Each Tuesday evening consists of about an hour and forty-five minutes of competitive basketball and 15-30 minutes of sharing a Gospel message, discussion and prayer. Brent Litton, Billy Allen, and Sam Brooks are faithful in helping and teaching the Gospel message each week. We believe this ministry is a great outreach to the neighborhood and anyone from the church is welcome to come be a part of it.
We gave made new friends and have a great time with them each week. We pray that the Lord uses our small efforts and sees fit to give us new little brothers in Christ one day! Our goals are simple: Share the Gospel, Make Disciples.
I am personally blessed by serving the Lord with my brothers from Christ Fellowship. I hope you will come and share in the blessing as well.
