We just completed our 13th season of Upward Basketball at Bailey Christian Church and are very excited for the season. We are so thankful for the community support and encouragement that we have received in using a ball to reach families for Christ.
This season we have been blessed with 311 players between the ages of Kindergarten and 6th Grade. Many of those players indicated that they are affiliated with a local church and your church is one of them. We wanted to make you aware of this. In addition, almost 1/3 of the players do not claim a church affiliation. This makes for a great local mission field.
Each season we focus on three virtues. These are taught at half-time during the practices and games. This season the virtues are:
Courage – Psalm 56:3
Patience – Ecclesiastes 7:8
Kindness – Luke 6:31
This year’s schedule was:
o Contacted by coaches week of January 8, 2018 (most likely toward the end of the week)
