They may not agree on evolution, gay marriage or abortion, but when it comes to a friendly game of volleyball - these Christians and atheists bring their best game face.

Team Royal gathers before the Christian vs. atheist volleyball tournament. Members of Abundant Life Baptist Church and Kansas City Atheist Coalition came together to face off at the net during a charity volleyball tournament on Saturday, June 22 in Lee's Summit, Mo. The group started with a discussion between believers and non-believers on a Facebook page that now has almost 300 members.

They may not agree on evolution, gay marriage or abortion, but when it comes to a friendly game of volleyball – these Christians and atheists bring their best game face.

Stemming from an idea on a Facebook page called “Cuddle Sessions”, a forum for conversation between believers and non-believers, a group of Christians from Abundant Life Baptist Church and members of Kansas City Atheist Coalition faced off at the net Saturday (June 22) in Lee’s Summit, Mo. for a volleyball tournament benefiting Drumm Family Farm, an organization that helps foster children.
