It was a very difficult decision, but after consulting with MLBC Pastors and staff, we have decided we must cancel the 2018 Upward Soccer season due to a shortage of volunteers.  As we know all too well, it takes an army to effectively run and manage an Upward soccer season.  I appreciate so much your interest in and comittment to the ministry over the past 10 years.  Many of you have been with us from the beginning and we’ve watched your kids “grow up” through the years participating in our league.  Some have even come back to referee and assistant coach.  We are most excited about the fact that hundreds of children and their families have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  That has always been the heartbeat of our ministry, evangelism cleverly disguised as a great sports experience.  Some good news is that there are other area churches putting on Upward soccer leagues.  You can visit www.upward.org to find information about those.  If you have already registered your child for our 2018 season and submitted payment, we will contact you individually regarding your refund.  We hope to get those processed as quickly as possible.  Please keep an eye on this page for information about any upcoming events next year.  
God bless,
Curt Hinson
League Director
