Upward Inclement Weather Notes

During our Upward Basketball & Cheerleading season we follow the following guidelines in the event of inclement weather. If Fairfield County is under Level 1 snow emergency or less the Church will be open for Upward activities.  Please travel if you feel uncomfortable in traveling to Upward activities, your child will not be “penalized” for not attending. Our coaches have the discretion to cancel your practice if you feel appropriate and will notify you.  If Fairfield County is under a Level 2 or Level 3  snow emergency all Upward activities will be cancelled. Note: To determine whether Fairfield County is under a snow emergency you go the Channel 10 website and type “snow emergency” in the search engine.

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.  Come out this Sunday and join the fun! Helpers are always needed to serve as greeters, concession stand volunteers, etc.


Hands Out Providing Encouragement


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?
