In preparation for the ArrowHeights.org 5K race in August I met with several of the Broken Arrow Cross Country Team boosters and Coach Shane Messinger on Monday night. The ArrowHeights.org 5K will be a fundraiser for the Cross Country Team and ties into the sermon series that we are starting this Sunday called Training for the Race. Over the weekend I was thinking about how I could help them team out more. Realizing that one of my strengths is working with blogs and creating web sites I decided to look to see if the team had a web site. Low and behold they had a single page on the athletic web site. I started thinking about how I could help create awareness about the Cross Country and Track team so I created a web site for them at www.brokenarrowtrack.com. At the church we have partnered with a local grade school in a program called Partners in Education. I think of this project as my partnership with education, plus I need to make friends with athletic people if I am ever going to start exercising and losing weight.
Programs like Partners in Education provide churches the opportunity to interact with people outside of the church and is a great outreach.
How are you involved in your community or local school?
