The vision that has brought such an amazing tool for the entire community!
We are honored to dedicate the “Rev. Kenneth E. Martin Gymnasium! “
We broke ground in 2008 and dedicated the multi-purpose gymnasium in June 2009.
The fall of 2009 we held our first Upward Basketball season with 92 players. This 2020 season we had 236 players!
The facility is used everyday of the week. KidZone Learning Center has daily activities and special events. Children’s Ministry and Youth use it Wednesdays and for special events. A small group of members use the gym when the weather is unseasonably or just to “CONNECT”; drones, soccer practice, corn hole, volleyball, basketball pick up, kickball, etc.
Throughout the week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the Adventures in Training with a Purpose use the facility. This community outreach is open to everyone. For more information on them see https://www.facebook.com/adventuresintrainingwithapurpose/?fref=ts
The vision Pastor Ken Martin had of this facility will continue to be a blessing to the community for many years. In January of this year (2020) Pastor Ken and Marlene retired. In the celebration service held Sunday, January 26, 2020 it was announced that the gym would be officially named the Rev. Kenneth E. Martin Gymnasium.
