We're Still Kicking!

What is Creekside Sports? The Creekside Sports ministry combines recreation and athletics to invite individuals and families into a caring Christian environment and to help them build a relationship with Christ. Creekside Sports is probably older than you think! About 22 years ago, several Creekside Church members gathered together and felt called to start a sports ministry at the church. Initially the ministry was filled with Creekside Church members, however that quickly changed as we expanded into the community. When Creekside Sports first got started, there were about 50 kids playing basketball during the winter season, followed by another 50 for soccer in the spring. Since then we have added baseball, t-ball, and cheer.

I’ve been proud to lead the Creekside Sports ministry for the last 15 years, and have had the pleasure of working alongside many of the original volunteers. I have seen the ministry grow beyond my wildest dreams. The Creekside Sports is now impacting about 1,500 kids a year. None of this would be possible without the help of the roughly 90-100 volunteer coaches that are involved every year. Without the help of our volunteer coaches, this ministry would not be possible.

What makes Creekside Sports ministry unique is that we are Christ centered. Our sports programs are designed to facilitate community outreach and to develop volunteer leaders in our church. Every practice and game includes a time of devotions and prayer.
