Sportsmen’s Ministry

The purpose of the Sportsmen’s Ministry is to glorify God and provide a network of support and fellowship across our common interests and/or needs. If you’re an outdoors person, this is a great way to “get involved” and meet others that share a common love of God’s creation.

The Sportsmen’s Ministry was established in 2003 and will continue as the Lord gives direction to the ministry team and senior leadership at Fox River.

We are excited that you are interested in this unique ministry and are considering attending one of our events.

To learn more about the Sportsmen’s Ministry, please e-mail us at sportsmen@foxriverchristian.org

God bless you as you enjoy His great outdoors!

Sharing the love of God through a common passion for His creation: the pursuit of the hunt or the tug on the line.

Realizing that we are all sinners to whom God has extended His grace because He first loved us, the sportsmen of Fox River Christian Church invite you to find out more about our church where you matter to us because… you matter to God!


Events Guide

Pheasant Hunt (Annual Event)

Join us January 9th – 11th, 2015 at Wern Valley for fun and fellowship as we hunt one of God’s most beautiful game birds, the ring-necked pheasant. We supply lunch, dogs and guides over a 3 day period that will be fun and safe. This event is open to all family and friends of Fox River. Youth are encouraged to participate and must have completed their Hunter Safety classes. If you have your own hunting dog and want to use him/her for your own team, you are welcome to do so.

Register here.

 

Ice Fishing Contest

Youth & Adults, come join us on the ice as we vie for the most fish caught in a given time period. Enjoy the fellowship & stories that only the ice can bring!

 

Sportsmen’s Expo (Annual Event)

Sportsmen and women, join us for a swap meet for fishing, camping, hunting & outdoor equipment as well as a chili cook-off. Youth and Families are encouraged to attend.

 

Spring Turkey Contest (early May)

We gather to award the winners of the spring turkey contest. We typically combine this with a pan fishing tournament in the morning and enjoy some fresh panfish along with wild turkey and other game prepared outdoors with fellow sportsmen and sportswomen.

 

Sporting Clay Shoot (May or June)

Come join us at Wern Valley for a fun time of shooting sporting clays. Knock the dust off that old pump or semi and let’s bust some clays!

 

Youth Goose Hunt

If you have a son or daughter that would like to spend a morning in the field with you and watching the sunrise, please let Jim Caughey know and we’ll try our best to make a memorable field goose hunt happen.
