Youth Sports Got You Crazy? Come Take a Time Out With Us!
Thursday, April 27 (6:30 to 8 p.m.)

Kids’ sports can bring out the best in our children. It teaches them to be team players, to work hard and be disciplined and to make healthy lifestyle choices. But sometimes, do you feel that the demands of youth sports can take over? What are we gaining and what, if anything, are we missing out on? Please join us for an informative panel discussion about youth sports in our modern suburban culture and how it impacts all of our families. What can we learn from each other – and the Bible – about how to balance our lives and prioritize our goals? Two of our featured panelists will include: Former Patriots Offensive Lineman Matt Light and Former NHL Player and Director of Ronan Power Skating  Ed Ronan
