Come…it’s a word of invitation. At this time of year, we hear it a lot. Come to the office party. Come to the school program. Come to the neighborhood cookie exchange. For some people, these invitations emphasize a sense of anticipation and celebration. For others, they drum up feelings that seem out of tune with the holiday spirit. This December, whether you’re feeling happiness or hopelessness, excitement or uncertainty, delight or despair, we invite you to COME: Hear the Message Behind the Music.

Why Upward?

Upward is a national children’s sports program, designed to give children and their families a positive sports experience by partnering with local churches to introduce children to Jesus Christ by creating opportunities to serve through sports. Upward Basketball & Cheerleading is designed to promote community outreach, develop volunteer leadership, and share the love of Christ with children and their families, using something as simple and enjoyable as a basketball. The primary focus of Upward is to develop the Winner in EVERY child, not just a few. By keeping this goal in mind, we are able to build a league that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in all who participate. Upward is different from any other league in our community.  In Upward Basketball & Cheerleading, the message of Jesus Christ is #1. Playing basketball and cheering is just a fun way to share God’s word with our neighbors and their kids. Registration begins in early October. Practices begin in early December. Upward season runs January through February and ends with a special Awards Celebration for all players, cheerleaders, and their families. REGISTER YOUR CHILD

From local events to packaging nourishing meals for the weekly Weekend Food Program to donating food, there’s a place for you in the H.O.P.E. Ministry. Providing H.O.P.E. through nourishment – “Weekend Food Program”  There are students in our community who, beyond the school week, are without food. The Violet H.O.P.E. Ministry delivers bags of food every Friday to local Elementary schools to students of families who have signed up for this assistance. The food bags consist of ready to eat, non perishable, healthy options that do not require cooking or much prep in order for safety for the children and are bagged with Safe Food Handling Regulations. There are three ways to help: Donate needed food items, assemble bags on Friday mornings and/or be a Delivery Driver.  Want to help? Have questions?
