Southwestern Adventist University welcomes you to Hoops Classic 2017. It is a privilege to have you on our campus as your basketball acumen and skills take center stage. Take advantage of being in the limelight. Dazzle us with the impossible. But as you continually elevate your game, I pray that you stay grounded and true to the One that has brought you to the 22nd Annual. May we become fans of you, not just of your game. May we be impressed by your life, not necessarily your style. And may He, who began a good work in you bring it to completion, not as you hoist the hardware, but at the very day of Christ Jesus.
Jan. 25 - 28, 2017
Tournament is just around the corner and we are planning for your arrival. You may remember last year at tournament church we asked you to be a part of our Stop Hunger Now Project and as a result, we were able to send 10,000 meals to kids who needed it. This year our Missions Department is joining with ADRA's H2Oh! Water Project. We are raising funds to help build a well in a place where clean water is hard to reach. ADRA has built many wells in the past, and we are very excited to be involved in a project we know will impact lives for a long period of time. Here's how you can help. There will be a Missions booth at the gym during all the games where you will be able to buy water for your players. Both individual bottles and full cases of water will be sold for $1 or $12 respectively. If you are interested in buying cases of water ahead of time, please e-mail Melissa DePaiva at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know how many cases you would like. This way, we can have them ready for you when you arrive. We hope you decide to join in with us in making a difference!
See you soon!
