As I type this blog, the click is at 3:36 remaining in the KU – Penn game! Padron any typos as I type and look up in these final game moments! LOL! It’s #MarchMadness. Sitting on the University of Kansas Campus energy is high and we (faculty included) can hardly pay attention until the final buzzer!
In the spirit of creating excitement and March Madness, I share with you a little more creativity from Dominion Word Ministry Church of God in Christ in Denton, TX. Ok…confession…just in case you haven’t figured this out from my bio…this is MY CHURCH!! Yes, I am away in law school in my home state of Kansas, but I am always amazingly excited about what is going on in the Sunday School at Dominion Word.
Last Sunday as students arrived, the theme was clear! The Sunday School has connected to the thrill of Basketball. But we are not marching into “madness”….we walk into Sunday School with GLADNESS!! From the entry to every classroom, the theme of basketball is alive. To add to the spirit of challenge, competition and winning, teachers from each class will decide on the incentive and prize from their class at the end of tournament that will follow the duration of NCAA tournament and the National Championship game. Prizes for each class range from $0-$100. You remember L.I.T. right? Well they announced their prize last week…a pair of customized Chucks with the class logo!!! How cool is THAT??
Hats off again to Supt. Jan Hall for vision and the commitment to be both relevant and exciting. And I celebrate our leader, Pastor Michael McWilliams, for giving space to ideas and being open to innovation.
🏀Game over! Final score 76-60! #Kansas #GoKU #RockChalk #Jayhawk
