Green & White Upward Basketball Season #7

In our 7th season, Jarvis Memorial & St. James Upward Basketball League served close to 400 boys and girls with the help of over 150 community coaches, referees and church volunteers.

Coaches discussed the virtues of SERVICE, CONTENTMENT and HOPE during the practice devotions this year with the children.

Our Virtues for Green & White Season 7
Upward places a great emphasis on understanding a biblical virtue reinforced through a scripture verse. Therefore, three weeks of practice focus on the same verse and virtue. 

Virtue: Service Verse: “God’s gifts of grace come in many forms. Each of you has received a gift in order to serve others.” - 1 Peter 4:10 (NIrV) 
Virtue: Contentment Verse: “I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens.” -1 Philippians 4:12b (NIrV) 
Virtue: Hope Verse: “In this world you will have trouble. But be encouraged! I have won the battle over the world.” -John 16:33b (NIrV)
