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!
Upward Basketball is returning to Jarvis Memorial UMC and St. James UMC in Greenville, NC on Saturday, JANUARY 7, 2017 for 8 weekends in January and February.  Practices begin November 28th.  We are hosting Upward Basketball and Cheerleading for children ages kindergarten-6th grade.   You may signup for  coaching, referees, keeping score, running concessions, or just pray for the ministry.   Much help is needed to make this year a success!

If you would like to help with the games at St. James UMC, please contact the church office (752-6154 or Info@stjconnect.org)

Registration for participants is open thru Friday, Oct. 28, 2016.

Register online at www.JSMnow.org or pick up an application at the information booths.
Upward Basketball provides a safe place for these young people to learn skills and sportsmanship, and it provides us an opportunity to serve our neighbors and reach out to our community in faith and love.  It is Bible Study and Basketball!  What could be more fun?!
