Our Upward Sports League is an outreach ministry in which our primary goal is to share the gospel with families in our local community. The families that have registered with us this year are not only from Fuquay-Varina, but nine other cities as well. As of today, there are 320 young people registered to play in our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading League. Think about this. That’s well over the number of people we typically have on a Sunday morning service.
Isn’t that exciting? That’s 320 sets of eager ears and eyes that will be listening and watching as their coaches speak about and live out the gospel! God has given us the facilities where we are to host a sports program to reach out to families who may not typically enter church walls with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe, that the success or failure of this outreach ministry begins with prayer. I would ask that you join us in praying.
- Pray that we would have sufficient Upward staff to run the program with a Christ centered attitude. We are still in need of coaches, scorekeepers, and referees.
- Pray that God would begin to humble the hearts of families to receive His open invitation of saving grace.
- Pray that God would strengthen our current staff to stay committed to running an excellent program.
- Pray for God to show you a way in which you can meet a need this ministry has.
