HIGH SCHOOLERS: Did you realize that there is now an afternoon time to play basketball? Since August, we have been having high school guys come to the gym on Monday’s from 3:30-5:30pm for Bible study and full court basketball. Each week, about 4 to 6 students come and participate. The group currently is studying Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7).
As I (Matt) serve as the Youth Community Outreach Director, one of my tasks is to discern the felt needs among our youth community. For quite a while now, we have had various groups of young guys come to Coffeehouse who like to play basketball. Since it is difficult to carry on full court basketball on Friday Nights, we decided to add a day of full court basketball. Since there is already a Monday night men’s group, we chose Monday as our night to meet as well.
We’re excited to welcome these guys into our community, and to teach them the Bible every week they come for basketball. The guys are learning what Jesus taught in the Bible, and are also becoming better, and more respectable athletes.
