With the start of our fall bowling leagues at the Rec Center also comes the start of our After School Youth Bowling League outreach! This is a great outreach that we do where students K through 12 can come out each Monday, bowl two games of bowling, receive instruction, pizza, and a drink. We are able to take buses and pick the students up at their schools and bring them out. The parents can either pick the students up at the Rec Center or to one of three drop off points. Over the past few years we have had lots of students participate in this program. Much of the outreach portion has been through relational evangelism and had even had students accept Christ. We have also had various times where we have presented the Gospel with our students with everyone listening. This year we hope to have more times where the Gospel is shared corporately and then have solid Christian adults who are available to follow up with the students. Please join me in praying that God will begin working in the lives of the students who are going to attend this outreach even now. Pray that we will have a great turn out and that many student will choose to follow Christ! Also, pray for plenty of adult volunteers to work with us with our student. Also, consider whether or not you could volunteer a mere hour and a half a week to see lives changed for Christ!
August is a busy time of preparation at The Lee County Recreational Center. As the summer closes we are busy gearing up with various outreach and activity plans for the fall and winter seasons. One of the big things that we have accomplished is laying out what bowling leagues we will be having and when they will be starting. Below is the flyer for when each individual league will be starting.
A prayer request I would like to ask of you is to pray that many people will come out and join these leagues. Over the last year due to not having heat and air, as well as various other reasons our number of league bowlers has declined. Our heat and air units are now up and running great and bowling is very comfortable. The league bowlers are very much a huge part of us being able to keep our doors open and do various outreaches. So please pray that we will have a great turnout! Leagues not only help us but they truly are a great way to meet new people, build relationships and have lots of fun. So if you live in this area, please consider joining a league yourself!
This Friday Night the Lee County Recreational Center will be holding an auction to help raise some much needed funding for our facility that will also help us be able to get our air conditioning system back up and running. At our auction we will have a cook out dinner that starts at 6:30 pm and has all kinds of delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, polish sausage, and much more. Some of the auction items available are below:
Red River Gorge ZipLine Passes, Various Restaurant certificates, crafts, pictures, exercise equipment, microwaves, mini-fridge, Coca-Cola Collectibles, Barbie & Marilyn Monroe Collectibles, humidifiers, knives, gift baskets, and much much more! Check out the attached flyer and please come join us for this very important fundraiser!
Many of you had been praying for our Golf Scramble fundraiser last weekend and I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated that. God gave us a beautiful day for golf and everyone had a great time. We were down a few golfers this year, but God blessed through some very generous sponsors! Please continue to pray for us as we seek to raise money and get our air conditioning back up and running for this very hot summer that is coming.
This week though, we are gearing up for our End of School Teen Lock-In!!! On Friday night starting at 10 pm and going till 6am in the morning, we will be packed with 7th-12th graders. Students will enjoy a fun night of cosmic bowling, bowling, ping pong and pool tournaments, karaoke, movies, and much more. About half way through the night we will shut down everything and a guest speaker will share the Gospel with our students. Please start praying with us for this event. Pray that many students will come out. Pray that we will have enough chaperones and helpers throughout the entire night. Pray for our speaker that they will communicate the truth of God’s Word effectively to our students. And most importantly, please pray for our students that they will have soft hearts and that many will make the decision to give their lives to Christ!
Lastly, please consider coming to join us for this outreach as a chaperone! As our staff gets older we appreciate those who have a heart for our students and would help us with this fun event. Hope to see you Friday night!!!
This Saturday, May 31st, we will be holding our second attempt at this year’s Lee County Recreational Center Golf Scramble Fundraiser. So far the weather report looks excellent, but please join me in praying that his will hold true and that we will have a gorgeous day for golfing. Also, pray with us that we will have a large turnout of golfers and that a lot of much needed funds will be raised for the Rec Center. We are in desperate need of getting our heat and air system back up and running here. The lack of air conditioning is really starting to put a financial hurt on our ministry. All that to say, this weekend could be a huge help for us financially. So please pray with me that all will go well this weekend! Thank you so much and we truly do appreciate your support and prayers!
