Update from Pastor Mooneyham - April 17

Posted onApril 17, 2020 | by: Isaac Mooneyham | 0 comments

By necessity most of us have needed to learn new skills, say in technology, to keep ourselves connected. And perhaps we’ve also rediscovered a few low-tech standbys, like puzzles or board games, to help us pass the time. Maybe you’re brushing up on your cooking skills.

It's also a simple way for students to earn service hours. Whichever way you look at it, you'd be doing a great service for our Upward ministry...Keep Reading

If you think we just teach basketball and cheer leading in our Upward league, think again. Every Saturday from January 12 through March 8, the gospel of Jesus Christ will be spoken to all the spectators of the basketball games. Statistically, that's approximately 700 visitors in 2 months. On top of that, we've got coaches who are teaching the Bible to 301 students every week. Pray for our Upward Team Members to magnify Jesus so they can see how great He really is. And if you'd like to brag on God at one of our halftime devotions, contact Aric LaBarr at Reading
