The teams were all comprised of neighborhood churches with locations in Arvada, Westminster, Lakewood and Denver.
“Our church loves to have fun,” said Nathan Salley, who is on staff at Mile High Vineyard’s Highlands location. “We have a number of neighborhood churches around the city and it’s rare that we get to bring them together to be in the same space.”
That’s one reason why the churches’ Kickball Classic was born. The other was to connect churchgoers with city partners and places to serve in their neighborhoods.
Some organizations the church partners with, which had representatives at the event, were Young Life, Whiz Kids Tutoring, Lutheran Family Services, Growing Home, Open Door Ministries, Head Start, Save Our Youth Mentoring, Ralston House and International Rescue Committee.
In the end, the championship trophy went to The Juggle Hugs, who went undefeated. The team was made of friends from the Highlands Vinyard in Denver.
