Detroit Soccer Outreach
Today, Dan Mitchell and I took five of our students to the east side of Detroit for Macc Development's soccer league. Macc Development is working with Mack Avenue Community Church to bring spiritual, social, and economic renewal to the south-east side of Detroit. Find out more here and here.
We spent the early morning setting up the fields and putting the goals and team flags in place. Then, we set up the welcome table with uniforms and cleats. And the kids and parents began arriving.
Because several coaches were absent, we ended up coaching the U-6 Seahorses. It was a great time and there was a joyful spirit among the parents, children, coaches and referees.
Our students worked hard and never complained about their very wet feet. The fields were waterlogged. I'm very grateful for their servant attitudes.
We've been asked back on October 29. We'd love to take more students and adults next time.
