“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23
The Bible tells us that we are supposed to work at ALL we do with ALL of our hearts as if working for the Lord. At First Friends Church, we believe this truth can be applied to athletics as well. Just as with any gift or ability that God has given us, we should seek to use sports like softball to glorify Him!
3 Values of All-Out Sports
All-Out Sports takes its value of Athletic Excellence seriously! We seek to provide an age-appropriate, healthy and encouraging environment to play the game of softball.
All-Out Sports believes that there is such a thing as “healthy competition.” When we strive to make each other better by giving 100% on the field, challenging our opponents to do the same, everyone wins!
At First Friends Church, we place Christ at the center of all we do, and that includes sports. In addition to games and league play, there will be a devotional time that we would like to encourage all of our participants to be a part of.
