Sports with a Purpose

We know that it is sometimes tough to reach out to friends, co-workers, and neighbors and talk to them about faith. Sports With a Purpose is meant to provide regular opportunities to reach out to others, by using sports as a tremendous bridge-builder tool within our community. Birthed out of outreach to men, we currently have co-ed teams and are open to women’s teams as well! While our current sports are all currently out of our Franklin campus, anyone from any campus is welcome to participate and we hope that some will step up to lead a sport at our other campuses. 

Sports With a Purpose is meant to provide regular opportunities to reach out to others, by using sports as a tremendous bridge-builder tool within our community - that is the “with a purpose”!

MEN

 

BASKETBALL

We currently have 2 men’s teams in the Franklin Park District basketball league. One team is in the open division and one team is in the 35+ division. While the regular roster is all set for the current season, we have openings for substitutes and for future teams and leagues. If interested in playing or helping coach a team, please contact Jon Cilurzo.

WEEKLY MEN'S GOLF LEAGUE

WEDNESDAYS
In 2019, we began a brand new men’s golf league. The league was an opportunity for weekly fellowship, group devotional time and 9 holes of friendly competition with a “team” concept where golfers of all skill levels are placed into competitive teams.  Another highlight of last year’s league was a fun closing dinner complete with awards. All men - fathers, sons, and friends are welcome and encouraged to join us.

Let's have some golf fun and hit 'em straight! If interested in playing or want more information, please contact Buddy Smith.

SOFTBALL

WOMEN

We have had some interest in several women’s sports. To this point, we have not had someone willing to lead a women’s sports with a purpose ministry. If any woman is interested in leading or helping lead a sport in 2020, please contact Brian Davis.

 

OTHER SPORTS

We have had some interest in several other sports at the Franklin Campus and at the Nashville and Nolensville Campuses as well. To start a sport at Rolling Hills, a leader must be a committed follower of Jesus, be committed to Rolling Hills as their home church, be willing to use the sport to reach our community and to lead it to break even financially. If interested in being a leader, please contact Brian Davis.

 

TASTE OF SPORTS

Because so many of our sports take place in the spring and summer, once a year we offer post-Sunday service sign-up opportunities at all of our campuses.
