Because we desire to reach East End and the surrounding communities for Jesus Christ, we are excited to offer soccer, basketball and cheerleading leagues through Upwards Sports.
Upwards Sports is an evangelistic sports ministry serving boys and girls in our community from 4 years of age through sixth grade. Even though we teach sport fundamentals and the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship, our main goal is to introduce children to Jesus Christ and nurture their spiritual growth. Each practice focuses on key scripture to help children learn about God’s plan for their life – all while having fun with coaches and teammates as they enjoy the sport.
Our members have many opportunities to get involved and reach children, parents, families and friends with the Gospel. They can serve as coaches and referees or through prayer, half-time devotionals/testimonials and concessions.
Our soccer season begins in September and our basketball/cheerleading season begins in December. For seasonal Upward sports information, click here.
