Feeling a little guilty about missing church to attend noon home Chiefs games? Well the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has a soul-saving game plan.
FCA will be partnering with the Chiefs to offer a non-denominational service in the mornings before home games. Mike DeVito will give the message for this Sunday’s service. Here’s some of the details from the press release.
"The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is joining with the Kansas City Chiefs to offer a non-denominational pregame chapel service for Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium who may miss their normal Sunday worship opportunities due to Chiefs games.FCA Faith and Family Chapel, which will be held inside of the East Pavilion on the south side of Arrowhead Stadium, will be led by Chiefs Chaplain Phillip Kelley alongside guest community leaders each week there is a noon home game. Chiefs DL Mike DeVito will deliver the program’s first message on Sunday, Oct. 26 prior to the Chiefs game against the St. Louis Rams. Services begin at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude by 10:15 a.m. Each service will include live music as well as a message. Due to space restrictions inside the East Pavilion, seats are limited, but standing room will be available until capacity is reached."
Why it took so long for someone to come up with idea, I don’t know. This should help out regular church goers who feel the need to both worship and tailgate on Sundays. Kudos to the Chiefs for being willing to partner with FCA to make this happen.
