Athletics Ministry Mission Statement:
Romans 12: 1-2, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Athletics Ministry Purpose:
The Athletics Ministry exists for the purpose of giving men and women in our fellowship a place to honor our Lord Jesus Christ with our bodies in the spirit of friendly competition. It is our belief that we are to glorify God with our bodies (1 Corinthians 6:20) by the way we compete on the court or field.
In a team or group setting, we meet regularly for a time of worship and devotion as well as for athletics. It is a great way to make friends with fellow believers and to become a part of the church family.
Teammates serve each other, the body of Christ, by lifting each other to the Lord in prayer, setting a godly example in a competitive arena, and being accountable to one another on and off the field. For new believers, or new people to our fellowship, it is a way to get involved in the ministry in a comfortable and familiar setting.
The Lord Jesus Christ calls us to be the salt and the light of the world (Matthew 5:13). By our commitment to serving the Lord and each other, instead of winning and losing, we are letting our light shine before men (Matthew 5: 16).
The Athletics Ministry is open to all men and women of the fellowship ages 15 and older. If you are interested in becoming involved in the Athletics Ministry, opportunities to play and coach are available year-round in different sports including:
-Men’s and Co-ed Softball
-Men’s Basketball – sign-ups will begin in January 2015, games begin on 2/28/15

Kung Fu San Soo is considered, by many, to be the most sophisticated and complete form of martial arts in existence today. Kung Fu San Soo is not a sport, but a complete fighting art. The most important distinction between San Soo and other forms of self-defense is the word: self-defense. While other martial artists meet an attack defensively, a San Soo fighter meets an attack offensively. This is an essential aspect of the art itself. Although San Soo is offensive in nature, it does not promote violent behavior. On the contrary, through the practice of Kung Fu San Soo, a fighter develops a strong respect for other people. Training in this art in a Christian environment also results in improved self-confidence, morals, values, concentration, and self-discipline.
