2014 SPORTS REACH
order to share important news with someone, you must first get their attention.
We live in a society where people love sports. So how can we use sports to get
people’s attention in order to share the best news anyone could hear?
I am writing this on behalf of Sports Reach, a Christian sports ministry based out of Kentucky, that for 28 years has been using sports to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I would like to invite you to the 9th Annual Sports Reach Auction. This is an event to help raise funds for this ministry so that they can continue to use the avenue of sports to make a difference in lives of others.
The auction in on Thursday night, September 4, 2014 at Christ Church United Methodist, 4614 Brownsboro Rd., Louisville, KY. The silent auction begins at 4:45 pm with the serving line for the meal beginning at 5:15. The auction will begin at 6:30 and will be over by 8:30.
Our theme this year will center around the Matthew West song “Do Something.” You will be challenged to see what God would have you do. You have a great opportunity to make an impact in the life of many others.
You will have an opportunity to meet many sports and media personalities during the evening and while participating in a fun filled “Living Silent Auction” and the Live Auction. Items that will be auctioned off are Louisville football and basketball tickets; Kentucky basketball and football tickets; golf outings; fishing trips; autographed memorabilia; romantic getaways; celebrity wives purses; and more.
Guest and Item Updates will be coming to this site soon!
This is a casual dress event that allows you to buy and contribute to this ministry. Your help allows this ministry to not only share the Gospel directly with others but to help individuals grow in their faith. Here are a couple of comments from those who went on recent trips.
- “This trip has changed my life!”
- “I realized that I must be God-confident in every area of my life.”
- “I can’t wait to get home and share with my parents.”
As you can see, people that go on these trips come back different. When they come home different, they have a chance to impact those around them.
Finally, the goal of Sports Reach for the remainder of 2014 and for 2015 is to lives impacted in every way. We want to see people come to know Jesus, people to grow in their faith, and people learn how to share their faith. But each year, it gets harder and harder to reach out. But your help will make a great difference.
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “ How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” [Romans 10:14,15]
I am praying that you can come be part of a fun filled, life changing night.
Please let me know as soon as you can.
