Joliet - The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy will host Faith Night on Saturday, August 26th. Gates are set to open at 5:05 PM, with first pitch at 6:05 PM. A concert opened by The Center Band will occur post-game, followed by Joliet local, Christian rap artist Milton
Faith Night, presented by The Center, has been in the works since October of 2016. The Center is a non-profit youth ministry that was originally from Joliet, but currently resides in New Lenox. Their hope is to eventually return home to Joliet.
Kelly Corcoran of The Center teamed up with Lauren Rhodes at the Slammers with a goal in mind of being able to provide a number of free tickets to the public. The hope is to reach teenagers and families of the area to give
them a place to worship and express themselves. The idea stemmed from the success other Frontier League teams have had with Faith Nights but the event is a first for the Slammers.
When asked about the progress Faith Night has made, Corcoran says, “It is more than a baseball game. It is a night of hope. It is a night of revival. It is a night of reaching out into the community to bring us together, to unite.”
The Center Band is a worship band that performs at The Center for their events. A group of local kids, and young adults spreading the word through music.
This night is made possible by Joliet First Presbyterian Church, Joliet First Assembly of God, Minooka Bible Church, Riverstone Financial Advisors, and a few others who wish to remain anonymous.
For individual or group tickets call (815)-651-2041, or visit the Box Office at Slammers Stadium. There is a limit of 10 tickets per person, unless reserved through a specified organzation.
