About This Activity

About I am 3rd Sports Ministries:
I am 3rd is one piece of the overall recreation ministries at Centenary Church. I am 3rd is based on a simple belief: Christ is First, Others are Second, I am 3rd. Through basketball, soccer, dance, equine, tennis and a variety of other sports, camps, and recreation activities, I am 3rd works to foster the athletic and spiritual development of all involved.

At the heart of our ministry are several key convictions including a belief that sports and recreation activities can:

  • Improve physical health in a God honoring way.
  • Enable a more holistic way of serving God with our lives.
  • Supply opportunities to build life-giving relationships.
  • Provide an excellent atmosphere for growth in faith.
  • Reflect and teach biblical values.
  • Teach participants that winning and losing is a part of life. The key is developing good sportsmanship.
  • Enable a more holistic way of serving God.
A Special Note about I am 3rd Tennis
Last season was our first season of I am 3rd Tennis and we had over 130 kids participate! I am 3rd Tennis was created and designed to introduce children and youth to tennis & advancement in skills. All participants will learn the fundamentals of tennis through the Quickstart program. Quickstart, is a creative childrens’ tennis program that’s specifically designed for children 10-and-under. Quickstart helps aid children in learning how to play tennis by using smaller courts, smaller rackets, and a slower ball. Katie Grier and Joanne Whalen will direct our I am 3rd Tennis Program again this season and we are blessed to have them back.
