After working through some challenging situations, the UPWARD committee decided to create a mission/values statement, which you will find posted in various places. As much as the statement itself is important, so is the thought, prayer, and effort that went behind it. Our Upward ministry statement truly was a team effort and a reminder of how God can bring good out of tough situations. When you get a chance to read the statement, please do so. It’s a great tribute to a fabulous program that our church has loved and supported for years.
