What Is Football Sunday?

Football Sunday is an in-church video presentation uniquely designed around the Super Bowl. Treat Football Sunday like a guest speaker; simply add it to your service where the sermon would normally take place and invite your community to get an inspiring inside look at faith in the NFL in a way that's relatable to all people.

Why not take control of all the commotion and potential distraction that comes with Super Bowl Sunday and use it to reach out to your community? People will watch the game differently; they’ll find themselves rooting for Jesus in the lives of individual players and the families they represent.


What Are People Saying?

"It was very well done! We drew a record number of people to our service because of this event. We had an accomplished high school football coach in tears he was so moved. It was as we hoped. . . a great event to invite unchurched people to. Thanks for creating this well-done football video!"

"Thank you! We used this for our afternoon outreach meeting (feeding ministry). I am going to follow up next week with them, but many in the room spoke the prayer at the end. It was a great tool to use that changed up our normal service. Always looking for new ways to reach our community. Thank you!"


FAQs

What does it cost?

Nothing. NFL players and sponsors have underwritten all the production, distribution, and promotional costs, but there are no promotional considerations and there is no advertising in the video.

What do we get?

The following, to be used at your option:

  • 3-week sermon series with Bible verse prompts, song suggestions, and links to downloadable videos for use on the weekends of the two Conference Championship games, the Pro Bowl weekend, and the Big Game itself
  • Promotional materials (Facebook cover images, images for Instagram and Twitter, printables like posters, flyers, small handout cards, etc.)
  • Supplementary Videos
  • 2 versions of the main video; a 6-minute “lite” version, and the full-length version at around 30 minutes in length.

When do I get it?

Promotional materials are available now. In order that we may incorporate players from the two Super Bowl teams (which aren’t determined until Sunday, January 24) the Football Sunday video will be available for download at Life.Church Open Network.

Why do I want promotional materials?

To facilitate using the event as an outreach to those in your community who are far from God and to build excitement within your congregation. We encourage you to embrace the outreach aspect of the event!

Is there technical support?

If you’re used to showing downloaded videos in your church, there won’t be anything unfamiliar about the files we provide. The Open Network support and community will be available to those participating in Football Sunday.

Do I have to sign up or can I just download everything on Friday before the game?

In order to help us improve the product and the distribution process in future years, we do want to know who you are and what church you represent so we can ask you for feedback. Also, we want to be able to celebrate with all participating churches and report how many people worldwide saw Football Sunday, as well as share stories of the impact the event had. Signing up at Life.Church Open Network is a condition of participation.
