“Then he said to them all: ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?”

Luke 9:23-25

The next FamTeam Day/Softball Classic will be held on Sunday afternoon, October 5.  The event will unfold on “FamTeam Field,” the softball diamond that sits behind the the Arndt family house in southwestern Illinois.

The first Classic was held in 1999.  As time passed, this annual event developed into something that we now call a FamTeam Day– a blend of Christian inspiration, indoor/outdoor fun, and friendship.  As simple and “down-to-earth” as these weekends are, many participants have been deeply impacted by them.

Over the years, several Cardinal baseball players (Adam Wainwright, Mike Matheny, Mike Easler, Reggie Sanders, Mark Grudzielanek, and others) have attended Classics and shared, in a heartfelt way, their love for God and commitment to Jesus Christ.

The upcoming Classic will feature the traditional softball triple-header, as the Arndt team squares off against a trio of local “all-star” clubs.  This will be followed by a fourth game,  in which our guests are invited to take the field for some fun of their own!  As usual, there will be Christian music and good food.

There will be no admission charge for the event.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us!

“Again he asked them, ‘Who is it you want?’ And they said, ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’ ‘I told you that I am he,’ Jesus answered. ‘If you are looking for me, then let these men go.’ This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: ‘I have not lost one of those you gave me.’”

“Jesus replied, ‘Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. Now about the dead rising – have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, “I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob”? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!’”

“When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.”
