Autumn weather is a great time for football. The ROAR flag football season wrapped up in November. The program groups kids into teams of 5-8 year olds and 9-14 year olds who learn skills and play games on Saturday mornings. This is a wonderful outreach ministry of Covenant that involved 45 families this season.
“The season was a blessing and went very well,” said Warner Frye, the director for ROAR football. Whether people serve as a coach or serve up hot dogs, “for such a small time commitment, the rewards are tremendous,” shared Frye. “We’ve had several kids come to know Christ in a personal way, along with families visiting our church. Seeing a kid’s eyes light up when he catches his first touch-down pass, tackles someone, gets a high five from a team-mate on a good play‟ – these are the truly rewarding moments when I know we are making a difference in a kid’s life for a long time.”
