Where is Your Spirit?

CFD Flyer 2013

The Great Midwest Football League has started its 7th season and is coming to Mehlville High School. St. Louis Spirit will be playing against MO Valley Pitbulls on June 8 for Family Christian Weekend. Dedicating their 2013 Spring/Summer season to alleviate homelessness in the St. Louis area, St. Louis Spirit is partnering with The Salvation Army to help the community.

St. Louis Spirit is an adult amateur football team in the Great Midwest Football League. The team is invested in community support and devotes each season to a specific charitable effort. The team is unpaid for their time but playing for St. Louis Spirit allows the players to strengthen their skills to possibly advance to a college or professional football career while also helping the community.

In an effort to “Sack Homelessness,” St. Louis Spirit will hold six events this season: Armed Forces Day, Christian Family Day (6/8), Fatherhood Celebration (6/22), Youth Celebration Day (7/6), Sack Homelessness (8/3), and Ladies Night (7/20).

Christian Family Weekend will be on June 8 at Mehlville High School. This event will be full of fun with a live Gospel Concert and football game. The concert will begin at 1:30 PM and kickoff between St. Louis Spirit and MO Valley Pitbulls will be at 3:30 PM. St. Louis Spirit is partnering with The Salvation Army for this event. If you donate a canned good to The Salvation Army, you will get a free drink. Tickets and information can be found at spiritfootball.org.
