Through scripture, we know that God places emphasis on good physical, mental, and spiritual health, and recreation provides an outlet for us to pursue this goal. Our Recreation Ministry offers many opportunities – for children, youth, and adults -- to engage in sports and fitness activities in pursuit of holistic well-being. In a Christ-centered environment, we Share the Joy of Christ and Christian fellowship while being active and teaching our children the fundamentals of sports.
