Upward Sports is the largest Christian youth sports program in the nation, and has been in Baker City since January 2018. The program is open for all the children in Baker City and surrounding communities!
This recreation basketball league is a unique experience that develops young athletes (K5- 6th grade) mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. Upward Basketball focuses on skills, training, character development, drills, and gameplay. It involves:
- 1 practice and 1 game per week
- Unique substitution system that ensures every young athlete plays
- Quality game day uniform and other sports related gear
- Age appropriate character and skill development both on and off the court
- Coaches who are focused on your athlete’s development physically and spiritually
- Registration: Opens September 8th, 2019
- Basketball registration is $55 per player
- Cheerleading registration is $65 per cheerleader
- Skills Assessment: We will offer one on November 16th (9am-11am) and one on December 14th (9am-11am) in the Family Life Center (FLC) gymnasium.
- Open Gym: Meet coaches and play fun games in December.
- First practice: Wednesday, January 8th or Thursday, January 9th in the FLC gymnasium.
- Game Schedule: All games will be on Saturday mornings from January into March
The sponsorship program can be another way for businesses or individuals to participate in this ministry and benefit young athletes who may be unable to financially participate in the program. Sponsorships will include your name or business on a banner that will be placed in the gym. These banners are great encouragements for parents, and are a visual way to show others in our community that you or your business supports these kids. Sponsorships range from $50 to $200.
For more information please contact Deidra in the church office – 541.523.3533.
Join us on Sunday, August 18th for a time of great worship, fellowship, fun and food. All activities will be held at Phillips Park starting at 10am.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a camp chair, and this is a traditional potluck so bring a main dish and a side that is big enough for your family. The church will provide water, cups, plates, and eating utensils.
Questions, please contact the church office.
You’re welcome to join us every Sunday at:
8:00 Prayer Time (in the Library in the main church building)
8:30 Sunday School for all Ages (Classes listed under the “Our Ministries’ pages shown above, or check the Sunday School list in Church bulletin)
9:45 Worship Celebration (in the Sanctuary in the main church building)
What is Love and Respect?
We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts unlovingly when feeling disrespected, and a wife reacts disrespectfully when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people the question, “When you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected?” 83% of the men said “disrespected” and 72% of the women said “unloved.” Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue!
Join us for this 10-week study on Wednesday nights starting June 5th from 6-7:30pm. It will be a great time together in study, discussion and fellowship. You haven’t been married too little or too long to benefit from this material. Childcare is provided.
Cost is only $10 for a workbook, but we ask that you sign up in the church office by phone or sign up below by May 19th to make sure that we have enough resources.
