Moving the Chains
In the Game of Football the intermediate goal is to Move the Chains. On the side line are two poles connected by 10 yards of chain. The first pole marks the place where you start. The second pole marks the spot you have to reach if you are to get a new “first down.” These poles and the connecting chain are referred to as “Chains.” Every time the team covers 10 yards the chains are reset and the team gets a new set of chances (downs) to move the ball down the field. If you are moving the chains you are getting closer to a score.
Our theme this fall is Moving the Chains. This is a metaphor for moving forward in our faith development. You will be challenged to get involved in Christian Education so that you will grow in your faith. Will you accept the Challenge to go deeper to develop your faith? Will you move the chains?
