SPORTSLEADER THIS WEEK - HONOR
At the prayer service this past Friday night, the team looked at how the virtue of Honor is part of wrestling and our faith. God calls us to be honorable through hard work, humility, and performing at our best. We looked at how Jacob wrestling with God in Genesis 32: 22-30 shows how God challenges and loves us.
Award for Courage: Quinton Rosser won this past week’s award for the virtue of Courage. He was presented a medal at the prayer service.
