     Did you know that by taking care of your body, you are honoring God? The Lake Deaton's Sports & Recreation Ministry offers many opportunities to help maintain your body moving! We care about your spiritual AND physical health because it is also important to God. You are honoring God by eating healthy, resting plenty and exercising. By keeping your body healthy you are able to move around and do your life's purpose- including God's work.


~1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLT) - "Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body."

     We have a wide range of recreational activities scheduled each week for you to enjoy. These activities are also a great way to invite a friend or neighbor to participate along with you. Scroll down and click on the button for each activity you would like to join.
