Upward Sports

“In Jesus’ Name, we PLAY”

Bethia UMC Upward Basketball & Cheerleading 2016/2017

Upward is a sports based ministry and we offer basketball and cheerleading for boys and girls starting at age K5. Upward offers the advantage of learning skills, playing a sport and most importantly, hearing a message from the Bible each week. Players all have a chance to play regardless of experience or skill level. If you’re interested in participating or volunteering, or if you need more information, please contact Charlie Brown or Steve Ouellette at upward@bethiaumc.org or call the church’s office at (804) 739-3459.
