Bible and Basketball

All youth are invited Join us Sundays at 5 pm for pick up games


Connections has always had a great relationship with basketball on our campus. We have held pick up games, tournaments and even produced a high school and middle school that competed to win championships.

After a long break to re-evaluate what basketball at Connections should look like we are back in the game with an evening of basketball with a 30 minute discussion of current events, scriptural questions and bible based discussions on who God is.

We are proud to open our gym to all in our community and would love to have you join us for this event as an adult volunteer or as a youth participant.

Safe Sanctuary


Did you know that the color yellow is perfect to compliment your Sunday finest?  If you haven’t yet gotten your special yellow lanyard, now is the time!  

Did you know:

  • that our yellow lanyards signifies completion of our Safe Sanctuary process?
  • That it gives you a great place to hang your name tag!
  • that by wearing your yellow lanyards, kids/youth know to look for you if they are lost, need help or are scared/uncomfortable for any reason?  
  • that they tell others that you value the safety of not only the children and youth of our church but also of the volunteers that work with them each week?

Thank you in advance for making this a priority. We look forward to presenting many lovely yellow lanyards!

What is Safe Sanctuary?

Safe Sanctuaries offers clear child abuse prevention and risk reduction policies that all local Methodist churches have been mandated to have had in place and operational by December 31, 2005. In this packet, you will find the policy, more defined information regarding the individual procedures around some of our unique programs, as well as the needed informational volunteer application forms. 

You should be aware that we have gone to great lengths to provide a nurturing, loving environment where you can feel secure in leaving your child. A church should be a safe place, never a place to feel threatened by any form of abuse; whether physical, emotional or sexual.

Our efforts involve, but are not been limited to, background checks, visibility, age requirements, roving monitors, and/or multiple adults in each room.
