Upward Ministries is a program designed to give children (both boys and girls) and their families a positive sports experience by partnering with local churches to build character, self esteem and salvation. The season incorporates practice, games, devotions, and a celebration event at the end of the season. The emphasis is on skill development and spiritual growth. Upward is a national organization, and you can learn more about them at the Upward Website.
To find out how your children (kindergarten - 8th grade boys and girls) can be involved in Upward Basketball and Cheerleading call the church office for more information at 502-535-5147.
