Football Sunday is a movement from within sports to bring glory to the Name above all Names on football’s biggest day. Sports Spectrum provides free resources for churches that include; an in-church video presentation starring famous NFL players, a 32 page magazine uniquely designed around the Super Bowl, and many tools to help you reach out into your community around football’s biggest day.
You can 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.
"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!"
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.
The following, to be used at your option:
Promotional materials are available now on Open Network. In order that we may incorporate players from the two Super Bowl teams (which aren’t determined until Sunday, January 21st) the Football Sunday video will be available for download at Life.Church Open Network.
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!
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.
Signing up allows us to send you promo materials as they are created. Also, since the film contains players who will play in this year’s Super Bowl, we need to edit all the way up to a few days before the game. Clicking "Notify Me" allows us to inform you when the film is ready to be downloaded.
