Our sports leagues at Calvary exist not only as a safe place for kids to learn basketball and soccer, but as a ministry to our athletes to help them grow in their faith and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Each week, our players participate in a team devotional time consisting of a short Bible study and memory verse, with an emphasis on applying Scripture to everyday situations both within and outside the world of sports. Our younger-aged lessons, written for ages 4-9, has the coach going through a Bible passage with the team, while our lessons for ages 10-18 consist of more discussion-based studies that aim to help the players think about these truths for themselves.
