A Record Weekend!


Last Sunday, Sycamore Creek Church where I work hosted our annual Football Sunday.  Living in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio has its advantages.  In fact, I just heard that Columbus was rated the top sports fan town in America.  So we go out and invite all the local rec league football teams, junior high football teams and senior high football teams to our service Sunday morning and to the Football Sunday festivities.

Well, we partner with Athletes in Action on the campus of Ohio State University and bring in players from the Ohio State Football Team.  Each year, we have a few guys come in, share their testimonies, and have some Q & A with the athletes in attendance.

With free food, autographed prizes and all kinds of fun- we even gave away an autographed Jim Tressel football to one of the coaches in attendance.

This year, we were able to have some big name football players.  Perhaps you have heard some of their names- Defensive back Donnie Evege, Linebacker Marcus Freeman, Linebacker James Laurinaitis?

And we set a record- 833 people in attendance during the weekend!  Awesome!  I can’t wait until next year…
