Another chance for kids to sling arrows is coming April 27.

On Feb. 2, Providence Baptist Church in Newnan hosted an open archery event that was available to kids from the first grade all the way up to the 12th grade. The day of archery shooting was part of Centershot Ministries, an outreach program that allows for archery and Bible study.

Twenty kids learned archery at Providence Baptist Church in Newnan on Feb. 2. The next event is April 27.

“With equipment owned by the church, 20 children spent the day learning about archery and more importantly about Jesus,” said Matthew Fowler, who spearheads the archery effort at Providence. “With two groups shooting, a competition at the end of the day crowned six winners, a first, second and third from each group.”

Matthew added that his church hosts this archery event quarterly, and the next one is planned for Saturday, April 27 and will last from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. To register for this free, fun-filled event, contact Matthew at (770) 328-3772 or by email at [email protected].

Centershot Ministries (CsM) is based out of Minneapolis, Minn. and is a non-denominational outreach program that shares the Gospel of Jesus using the life-skill of archery. CsM does this by partnering and equipping the local church to use this amazing tool to reach the community around it. A core value of CsM is the belief that the best way to reach communities for Jesus is through the local church, and that is why CsM partners with the local church.
