Our recreation ministry exist as a means to meet and share the gospel with members of the Sandy Springs community. In a diverse city like Atlanta, many people will not darken the door of a church building to listen to a sermon or partake in Bible study. But many will participate in a sports league whether it is at a YMCA or on the campus of a church. We encourage and equip members to be bold faithful evangelists as the coach, play, or just hang out and watch.
Mount Vernon has a basketball court and lighted ball field. We use these facilities to host basketball, softball, and flag football leagues for adults and children.
MVBC Basketball Camp
We want the MVBC Basketball Camp to consist of two major components: the Bible and the fundamentals of basketball. The coaches and instructors at the MVBC Basketball Camp desire not only to coach basketball players, but to teach kids the word of God. The MVBC Basketball Camp is open to boys and girls ages 7–14 and the cost is $35 dollars per player. For other questions about the camp, please contact Morris Bradshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dates: July 7-11 (ages 7-10), July 28- Aug. 1 (ages 9-14)*
Cost: $35 per player (for each week of camp)
*Please note that children who are 9-10 are permitted to attend the camp offered July 28-August 1, but it is recommended that they have 2-3 years of basketball experience.
