CONCESSION STAND DONATIONS: Proceeds from the Upward concession stand helps with the scholarships that we give out for families that need a little help with the registration fee so that their player can play. You can help by taking a basketball tag off of the display and bring the item(s) back by January 6. This will help us continue to offer scholarships to those families that need them.
UPWARD VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We are looking for volunteers on Saturdays in January and February to help make Upward game days go smoothly. Please check your schedules and see if you can give us a couple hours on a Saturday with game day help or in the concession stand. If you have any questions, please contact Pam Williams.

Upward is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically designed for Kindergarten through sixth grade boys and girls that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in every child. Upward provides opportunities for churched and unchurched of our community to get involved in the ministry of our church. They will have the opportunity to pray for our program, coach a team, referee a game, and develop relationships in order to open avenues of ministry to people of our community who will participate in our program.
