Mt. Zion ministers to children from birth through 12th grade.  Through Sunday School, youth group, and a lot of fun activities children and youth learn about Jesus and have opportunities to develop friendships.  We pray that each child will hear the gospel and make the choice to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.


Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young,

but set an example for the believers in speech, in life,

in love, and in faith, and in purity.  ~ 1 Timothy 4:12

Pine Car Derby

Upward Basketball

  • Facebook - Black Circle

For Grades 1st -8th

At Mt Zion Church

Check us out on Facebook by clicking the icon above.


Upward Sports started as a single church basketball league, and basketball has been our most popular sport ever since! From a Recreation League through an Academy or Developmental Program all the way up to Upward Stars, young basketball players can chart their own athletic journeys through multiple levels of programming – all while being developed into total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.


Our culture has created a "win at all cost mentality" - most points, most trophies, most championships - generally defines a winner. Upward defines winning as learning and/or teaching lessons in the game of life. Parents, coaches and officials play a vital role in building the self-esteem and character of every child in this league. Players will look to their parents, coaches, and officials as models for sportsmanship, respect for authority, and positive attitudes. Together we can provide a lasting effect in these children that will last long after the end of the season.

Upward promotes Character and Self esteem in Every Child by:


Providing an evaluation system that promotes equal teams and opportunities

Teaching and promoting the "Circle of Affirmation"

Using a substitution system for each team,

Awarding special recognition awards after every game

Special player and team announcements at every game

Awarding EACH child an end of season award / gift
