Is archery a fit for my church?
Churches are designed to play an important role in their community. In a connected age where isolation still reigns supreme, the antidote for us as people of faith is to foster connection with the people around us.
Even if it wasn’t the first option that came to mind, archery quickly becomes a favorite choice for church leaders with this mindset who are planning their next community outreach program. The beauty is it includes the whole family!
Communal activities–like sports–are designed to bring us together. They enhance strength, patience, and even self-discipline. As you know well, this has been the case dating back to even Biblical times.
Unlike other sports programs, archery doesn’t require lots of equipment and is inclusive of everyone’s ability. It’s the perfect activity for all age groups. In fact, it’s one of the fastest-growing family sports.
Most importantly, the pace and style of a Centershot Archery Program foster the perfect environment to point people to Jesus.
