Congregation, please be in prayer for the upcoming season—that lives would be changed as players and their families come to know Christ, that everyone will honor Him in their behavior on the court and in the stands, and that the children have fun, develop new skills, and make new friends.

Be sure to get a car pass in the downstairs lobby if you plan to distribute candy, and be ready to share the name of Jesus with the community. If you would like to help, contact Brittany May.
