UPWARD Season Postponed

Oct 7, 2020 | HUMC KIDS, UPWARD Basketball

Herndon UMC is grateful for our Upward families and their continued dedication to the Upward program. This ministry has touched thousands of lives over the last 13 years and we are so excited to see how young people and families will continue to grow together through Upward in the years to come.

Unfortunately, as we live through this pandemic, we must continually reassess the wisdom of gathering together indoors for a sport that involves physical contact between people and with surfaces. After much prayer and discernment, we have decided to postpone the 2020-21 Upward basketball season at Herndon UMC. We are very sad about this, but feel it is the best decision we can make for the safety of children and families in our community.

Please note that this is a postponement and not a cancellation! Our hope and prayer is that circumstances will shift and allow us to offer some kind of Upward basketball season or camp in the spring or summer months. 

While we won’t be meeting in person right now, if there are other forms of support we can be offering you in the form of prayer, conversation, or something else, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.  

Thank you so much for your continued interest in the Upward basketball program!

The mission of Herndon UMC is to serve and share God’s Love in community.


The vision of Herndon UMC is to live the teachings of Jesus so that everyone may know God’s Love and grow in Spirit-filled relationships.
