Saturday I entered one of the most hectic 10 days of the year. I have been preparing and planing for this week since January. This is KidsGames week check out the websites for more info ... (www.kidsgames.com www.kidsgamesindianapolis.com).
What is so awesome about KidsGames ... it is international sports ministry. This is a way to use sports to share the Gospel of Jesus ... what an amazing vehicle. There are 7 sites in Indy participating this year, we had a Youth Leadership training Saturday. Brookside Church is partnering with Connection Pointe Christian Church of Brownsburg to bring this amazing program to the Brookside Kids this week.
This is our second year partnering with Connection Pointe. Sunday when we headed over to Conseco Fieldhouse for opening ceremonies for KidsGames, the neighborhood kids were paired with Connection Pointe kids.
I was so moved when a number of the kids knew each other, it was a like a famly reunion - they hugged and laughed then spent the day together. I got a little teary-eyed when I realized that these relationships will continue to grow over the next years. As this partnership continues, the Connection Point Kids are 7, 8 and 9th grade ... the neighborhood kids are k-5th grade. Relationships, that is what it is all about.
GRACE AND PEACE!
