The opportunity to acknowledge Christ and apply his teachings in a recreational environment is the foundation and spiritual motivation of Idlewild Baptist Recreation Ministry.

 

We offer Spring baseball and softball for both girls and boys, Ages 5 to 15.

 

Our goal is to be a living, testimony of God's love and Grace. Each team has both Godly coaches and team Chaplains to bring God's Word through prayer and reading. We want to teach everyone the skills that can be used on the ball fields as well as teaching them and drawing them closer to Jesus Christ. Each practice and game a time of devotion and prayer is led by the Chaplain. We also have people in the church prayer walking the fields and praying for the teams. The ultimate goal of the entire ministry is to show the love of Christ to all who come in contact with it. We focus everything that we do on 1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” (NAS)
