Hi Upward Families and Volunteers,
After much prayer and consideration, the Pastoral and bigKIDS Ministry Staff have concluded that God is calling Blue Valley Baptist Church in a different direction with regard to soccer ministry and we will no longer be offering Upward soccer going forward.
A new ministry at BVBC has been launched this Spring. We are bringing soccer to a low-income apartment complex where our church is actively involved through a partnership with Mission Southside. Unfortunately, this will not allow us to accommodate a large number of families the way Upward did previously, but there are still opportunities for BVBC families to serve, connect and share the Gospel through soccer (additional information is forthcoming).
We really appreciate you and your involvement with Upward at BVBC through the past seven seasons! It has been an honor to build relationships and spend time with you all. As we look back, we are excited about how God worked to provide opportunities to serve, bless families, build community, and introduce children to Jesus Christ through soccer.
