It is the hope and prayer of the First Friends Church All Out Sports Ministry that we provide excellent opportunities for fellowship and inter-personal relationships to occur and grow through our various sports and recreational opportunities.

In communicating a proper Christian ethic, we seek to improve the overall physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of each participant. We seek to encourage each participant who does not know Christ to establish a personal relationship with Him. For those who already do know, we hope to help deepen their walk with Christ in fellowship with others.
