Upward Basketball at St. James UMC

upward-basketball-web-bannerYes!  Upward Basketball is returning to St James this fall.

Every child is a winner! This is the slogan of Upward Basketball & Cheerleading and yet Upward is about a lot more than dribbling, bounce passes and cheers. It is one of the most intentional tools for helping us make disciples of Jesus Christ!
 
Registration for the 2018-2019 Upward Basketball season is now underway for boys and girls age Kindergarten/5 through 6th grade. The early registration cost per child for basketball or cheerleading is $85 through October 14, 2018. Late Registration is then $95 until Oct 26, 2018 (as available). This includes games jerseys, short, T-Shirt and devotional materials. Read more…


Family Worship

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
 
Beginning in October, we are starting something new! The FIRST Sunday of every month will be Family Worship. On these first Sundays, we will not offer Children’s Chapel or Childcare for school-age children during the worship services. Instead, we are excited to have them join us, share communion with us, and worship with the congregation! Nursery will still be provided for infants-4 year olds, and we will have Sunday school classes as usual for all ages during the Living Water hour.
 
For more information, please contact Molly Carpenter at 752-6154 or Molly@stjconnect.org
