Recreation Ministry

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

We offer recreation opportunities for kids, youths, and adults throughout the year. In all of our leagues and camps, we value healthy competition, fair play, and an atmosphere of affirmation and encouragement—one where the entire family benefits from a positive sports experience.

Kids & Youths

Our spring season consists of a popular youth recreation volleyball league for 5th to 9th graders. In the summer, we offer various sports camps for elementary aged kids and middle schoolers looking to hone their skills in the off-season in a fun, affirming environment. Our fall season brings sport academies, and our winter season plays host to a thriving, youth recreation basketball league for students in Kindergarten to 8th grades.

Adults

We offer Pickleball in an open play format three times per week in the gym at our Midlothian Campus location. Pickleball is a fun, growing sport that has become increasingly popular in the surrounding area. Combining elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis, Pickleball is enjoyable for players of all ages! It’s certainly not rare to hear a lot of laughter and giggling in unison with the sounds of the paddles and pickleballs rallying back and forth across the courts. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, where all skill-levels are welcome, and we desire for our players to have fun and meet new friends, too!
