This year’s Upward basketball program at Troy UMC featured over 100 players and cheerleaders. The Family Life Center came alive every Saturday morning with hundreds of kids, parents, grandparents and others. The highlights of each Saturday included the excitement of the players and cheerleaders, the coaches investing in the children and the large number of volunteers from the church who gave of their time and talents to make everything run smoothly.
Each week, the kids heard a devotion about the God who loves them and how he wants them to act as children in their home, students and school and as teammate. The parents also heard devotions encouraging them to be intentional about being spiritual role models to their children and giving them practical ways to achieve that that goal.
A huge thanks to everyone who helped make this a great Upward season.
