Celebration
 

Home Up


 

    On Monday, March 14th, the Upward basketball celebration took place at the Central Nazarene Church. Both Tyler and Samantha joined the rest of their teams one last time to remember the season that was. The evening began with an introduction of all of the teams, their coaches and players emerging from the tunnel one at a time. Following the introductions was the entertainment for the evening, which was provided by David Cain, the Juggler for Jesus. He told a variety of parables, incorporation his props to help tell his stories, mixing in timely jokes here and there to keep things a little bit lighter. The evening wrapped up with a drawing for a basketball scholarship for next season as well as several basketballs, which neither Tyler or Sam were lucky enough to win. Before the teams broke up for the final time, the coaches handed out an Upward backpack to each of the kids as a souvenir for all of their hard work.

    Although Tyler will be to old to play Upward next season, both Samantha and Drew would like to play next year. In all honesty Drew probably could have played this year when you compared his height to many of the kids who were playing, but we never really even thought about it!

David Cain, the "Juggler for Jesus," was the entertainment for the evening. Here he is juggling some rubber balls...

...and some juggling clubs.
