The Recreation Ministry at Johns Creek Baptist Church focuses on delivering the message of Christ to participants from four years of age all the way to senior adults. Our emphasis is not just sports leagues – we consider ourselves life leagues. Johns Creek Baptist supports this vision in several different ways.
Kids from four years of age through sixth grade participate in basketball, soccer, and cheerleading. JCBC partners with Upward Sports, the world’s largest Christian sports league for kids. By providing a fun sports experience based on healthy competition, Upward Sports Leagues help kids develop skills for the sports arena and values for life. Upward Sports uses the universal language of sports to connect with kids at a critical age and help them discover and build athletic skills, values, self-confidence and a life-long love of the game.
Registration for the 2016 athletic year is as follows: Spring Upward Soccer (December 2015-January 2016), Summer Camps (March 2016-June 2016), Fall Upward Soccer (June 2016-July 2016), Upward Basketball/Cheerleading (September 2016-October 2016). Information and Registration for the upcoming 2016 JCBC Upward League is now available.
Family outings are held several times during the year. Popular trips in the past have been to Callaway Gardens, the Gwinnett Braves, the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca Cola, and the city of Blue Ridge.
