Local sports fans try American Football
Just hours before the Philadelphia Eagles claimed their first Superbowl by overcoming the New England Patriots, players of all ages and from across Nottinghamshire took the opportunity to try American Football, in a 2 hour session organised by Nottingham Caesars Head Coach, Barry Boseley. As well as putting the group through their paces and giving them the opportunity to try on the equipment, Barry shared passionately about his Christian faith, reminding us that it is never too late, or too early, to accept God's invitation.
This was just one of the many events the Ministry of Sport has planned this year. The full list of events can be viewed here. However, for all these plans, these tools will only be useful for building God's Kingdom if they are picked up and used faithfully by us, the Church in Nottinghamshire. This will take effort, sometimes pain - sport teaches us that there is no victory without sacrifice. But if we are willing to be courageous and prayerfully invite our sport-loving friends to join in these events with us, who knows what God could do?
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
