The Soccer Team of the Armenian Evangelical Emmanuel Church Wins 2nd Place

The soccer team of the Armenian Evangelical Church participated in the AIA (Athletes in Action) Soccer Tournament, for a period of three months, at the Beirut Municipality playground.
Around 10 Christian church teams participated and much to our surprise it was great news to know that the top 2 winners of the championship were Armenian teams.
The idea of the AIA is to reach out to the youth through soccer tournaments. Before every match, the competing teams would circle around and pray together.
The Armenian Evangelical Emmanuel Church team handed the trophy to the pastor, during a celebration gathering after the Sunday Church service.
