Straight Up is a sports ministry for Kindergarten thru 6th Grade boys and girls whose purpose is to passionately share the love of Jesus Christ with children and families through sports!
Straight Up Basketball and Cheerleading are available in the winter/spring months. This ministry offers children and families a safe and completely family friendly sports ministry. Straight Up is focused on teaching children the fundamentals of the sport but more importantly the love of Jesus Christ. It is our desire to share the gospel through our season of Straight Up to everyone, in hope to see children and families come to Jesus to be saved and passionately follow Him.
Straight Up Ministries is based on Hebrews 12:2 which says “looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” So our goal is to lead kids and families to be Straight Up…..looking to Jesus to have a relationship with Him and help them develop in Christ-like character.
Each season will consist of weekly practices and Saturday game days that are family friendly. At each practice coaches will teach children fundamentals of the sport and also spend time sharing God’s word and in prayer during a devotional time. On game day, each child will receive an equal amount of playing time where they will be able to have fun applying what they are learning in practice, not only about the game but also Christ-like character.
What sets this ministry apart from all else is love and passion. It is with the love of our Lord Jesus that drives our passion to share His love with each child and family that we have the opportunity to serve.
And….This Ministry is offered to our community for FREE!
