Those who hope in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
- Isaiah 40:31
Upward is an outreach sports ministry for children in grades 1st through 8th grade for basketball and cheerleading. It strives to create an equal playing field for all participants, teaching teamwork, sportsmanship, effort, and Christlikeness. Athletes build character and self-esteem while learning the fundamentals of basketball and cheerleading.
Upward is made possible only with the talents and sacrifices of many volunteers. Please consider helping us in whatever way God has blessed you.
Do you have suggestions for another way you could help? Feel free to contact Andy &
