As these cheerful kids are scattered across the fields behind Remnant Fellowship church, soccer balls soar and parents get settled together with coffee and cameras in hand.
This fall marks the eighth annual soccer season hosted at Remnant Fellowship church with over 85+ youth in attendance. The Leaman family has graciously volunteered their time year after year along with several more saints with athletic talents, to train up our children on how to be a team player for the glory of God! When discussing the joy that comes from coaching each year, David Leaman explained,
Not only are these youth learning basic soccer skills and proper methods of play, each child is walking away with a deeper understanding of what it means to glorify God on and off the field. Every Sunday the youth in attendance, are taught how having the right attitude and keeping their hearts pure are such intricate parts of a strong team and moreso a relationship with God. Alec Leaman, coach and volunteer explained,
With experiences playing soccer from a young age and through highschool, Alec’s has had the opportunity to understand what it means to be a true team player.
From the youngest players to the most experienced, each player is transferring what they learned from Sabbath services to how they play soccer and walking out a heart for God and a love for each other onto the field. If you have a free Sunday be sure to stop by the fields!
