The first Upward Basketball practices of the 2018 season started this week, and the first games are Saturday, January 20! A successful season requires a huge amount of volunteers and we are still in need of assistant coaches, referee’s, concessions, set up, post game cleanup, and encouragers! If interested, please contact our Upward Administrative Team, Brad & Donna Carlson at email@example.com. We invite you to pray with us for 100 days throughout the basketball season. Prayer calendars are available from the Information Center.
With the new year we have a new guest WIFI password. The SSID PDXFirst-Guest and the new password is PDXfirst18.
