Christ United Methodist Church began Upward Basketball in the Winter of 2004 in a newly constructed Family Life Center. Upward Cheerleading was added in 2005 and by year three, Upward Basketball at Christ Church had grown to the point that an additional Saturday was added to the schedule.
Since the beginning, Upward has seen many new faces, and many Upward players, coaches and volunteers have gone on to do other things. But every Saturday in January and February, you will see many young smiling faces run through the tunnel, make their first basket, cheer their first cheer and perhaps enter a church for the first time.
Upward is under the direction of our leadership team:
Mike & Jessica Holdren, Danielle & Philip Malone, Brian & Chrissie Thompson and Andy & Sarah Harris
Promoting the Discovery of Jesus Through Sports.
