Brothers in Christ are offering a free program from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Saturday at Kentucky School for the Deaf, where boys ages 12-18 can swim, play basketball or volleyball, and eat pizza.

Founded in 1998, the Danville-based organization includes men from different denominations whose mission statement is to "mentor to youth, further God's kingdom and share Christ without apology," said member Terry Stevens.

A devotion is part of the program, but this event is not just for those connected to a particular church, Stevens said.


"This is for young guys who just don't have anything going in their lives on a Saturday night," said Stevens. "It's a good thing for them."

"Hopefully, we are going to wear them out so they just go home and hang out," said Wes Winchell, a member of Brothers in Christ.

The program was held four times in 2002, but preparations for the group's Foundations Festival made the Brothers in Christ too busy to host the summer Saturday night program in 2003, Winchell said.

The group looks forward to the chance to get more in touch with the youths in the community this summer, he said.

Our Savior Lutheran Church in Danville is sponsoring the program, which will be held again 6-9 p.m. June 26.|5/6/04|***
