Faith Night 2021 Sees Small, Intimate Crowd

Sep 13, 2021

Approximately 100 fans stayed after the Rapids drew Los Angeles Galaxy FC to a 1-1 draw on Saturday to participate in the Faith Night event. Soaring game-time temps (93° F) made for a hot afternoon; however, second-half cloud cover cooled things down to make the time enjoyable. Local worship leaders Stephen Newhall (Littleton Christian Church) and Canaan Hurst (The Sacred Grace – Englewood) kicked the event off by leading in some contemporary worship and closing with a hymn.

Afterwards, I (Rev Brad) interviewed athletes from the Rapids. They shared their personal stories of faith and the impact their faith has on their football and family lives. A fun moment for the group was hearing Kellyn Acosta share his “suited and booted” experience growing up as a child going to church on Sundays (clip below).
