Recreation Ministry

Our Recreation Center is more than a rec center, it is a ministry. We have several seasonal events including Breakfast with Santa and our annual Fall Festival, Noah’s Ark. We also minister through Upward Basketball in the Fall/Winter as well as Spring and Summer Adult Basketball leagues.
