05 May Creating Possibilities at Turnstone
“It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.” (Ephesians 2:10, TLB)
On Saturday, April 23, the Servolution team helped Turnstone with their Power Soccer Mid American League Tourney. When we arrived, we received a tour of their new gym facility. The facility is incredible and uniquely designed for those with disabilities. Next, we were all assigned a position at the event. We served as greeters to the families and players that attended, ball runners, scorekeepers, registration attendants, and we also cheered on the teams.
Turnstone had two of their own teams playing in the tourney. The players were unbelievably talented and skilled at playing power soccer. You could tell they had put a lot of time and effort into perfecting their skills and learning how to play. The teams have no age limits. One team had someone as young as 5, but the majority are in their 20’s to 40’s. The event was amazing! Turnstone definitely knows how to run a tournament. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently. The players all seemed to have a good sense of humor and a competitive side, which was fun to watch unfold as they played. You couldn’t help but leave there with a smile on your face! I am so grateful we had the opportunity to serve at such a wonderful event with such awesome people. We all loved helping at the event so much that we are doing another event at Turnstone in June. The Servolution team will let you know more details as the date approaches. You will NOT want to miss it!
