Checking Out Upward

A couple of weekends ago Alyssa and I took Scott, our music dude, to Yakima to check out the Upward Soccer program at the Yakima West Valley Church. We were really impressed with the program. Luis associate pastor who runs Upward, and his wife Lisa, showed us the ins and outs of Upward, let us follow them around all day, and then bought us lunch! It was awesome. The program includes devotional times at all the practices, prayer at every game, and a testimony from a believer before every game. Kids come away from the program knowing the gospel message.

I think there is some potential for Upward within our community, but there is also another well run soccer league for children going on. I’ve asked our church to be praying about Upward and our church. It’s something I think God could use here.
