“Before they step foot on the court, our hard-working athletes receive a Biblical devotional and are led in group discussion by a team member. It is important that our kids are not only given the same opportunities to thrive and be successful as every other child, but that they are also being discipled to love and trust Jesus more. Lately, these devotionals have been centered around the importance of self-control granted by the Holy Spirit. Such lessons have come from beloved passages like James 1:19.”

Reading Ahead — BridgeBuilders

"When asked about BridgeBuilders’ goals with Lexia, Tracy Lindsey, Director of Kids Program, said, 'Our outcome is to provide exactly what our mission statement says, which is to equip our kids by helping them read above grade level.' Though we have just begun using this program, we have already seen results that make us confident that it will be a key player in this mission."

Winning in Our Lives — BridgeBuilders

“'Even though we don’t win on the court this year, we are winning in our lives, because we play together, support each other, and love each other no matter what.' It is inspiring to see such wisdom from these girls as they learn what it means to win in life, even if you lose on the court."

Though the deep pains and expressions of racism are still present all over the U.S.A. today, we celebrate a man, the shoulders he stood on, and those who have stood since, who have fought for equality and equity for every man and woman within these states.

The fight is ongoing and the battle is long. However, the words of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. capture it best...

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day to everyone. May God bring us peace, grace, and justice.

Right now, we have raised nearly $18,000. We are very close! Would you prayerfully consider joining us as we support the Miller family?

The Christ Centered Learning day for this unit was about Advent. Staff were given the opportunity to teach the kids in the after-school program about Mary and Joseph, the wise men, the shepherds, and of course, Jesus!

It was quite moving to see how much the kids already knew and to answer all of their questions.
