"Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith…"  Hebrews 12:1b and 2a

The purpose and mission of Neptune’s Recreation Ministry is to provide recreation based ministries for the church and the beach community. Through fun, sports, exercise people are connected to community and the love of Christ.

Having fun reaching people for Jesus, building community and helping people become healthy in spirit, mind and body - that's the goal of Neptune's Recreation Ministry. We hope to reach people during every season of life, providing a wholesome, family oriented environment that offers a variety of sports activities.

UPWARD Football and Cheerleading

Upward is a value based program for children grades K through 12th grade (football) and K-5th grade (cheerleading).  In this program each child is a winner and we strive to make sure that each child has a positive experience with their team. In this league, every child is given equal play time and is rewarded at the end of each game for something that they did well on the field.

 Upward promotes character and self-esteem in every child by providing:
  • Equal playing time for every player
  • A one-hour practice and game each week of the season
  • An evaluation process to provide equal opportunity for improvement
  • Each player signs up as an individual, not as a group or team

At the end of each 9 week season, we have an Awards Ceremony and dinner for children and their families to attend.  There is always a nationally known key note speaker and each child is rewarded for their effort that season.  
For more information, please visit the Upward page.
