Recreation Ministries

Advent is an active church that believes in the importance of connecting through relationships with one another to strengthen our faith, both collectively and as individuals. Through programs such as our Advent Hoops basketball program, those connections can happen on the court, as well as on a softball diamond with our softball teams.

Likewise, we feel that our children and youth benefit greatly through the programs and experiences on the court or field. We are blessed with an outstanding Christian Life Center that is well suited for many types of indoor court related recreation. While a large part of our Advent Rec mission is involved with coordinating and sponsoring our Advent Hoops basketball program each winter, we also want to be a resource to help guide any of our congregation who feels the calling to lead a new sport or recreational endeavor. We want to hear how we can continue to challenge and nurture an active Advent Rec ministry. Please contact Bishop Scott, Chair of the Advent Rec Committee at [email protected] with your prayerful thoughts and suggestions.

Advent Hoops Basketball

Welcome to Advent HOOPS Basketball 2017-2018 You have come to the right place to register for Advent YOUTH and MEN”S basketball. Advent basketball teams compete in the GDUMRA (Greenville District United Methodist Recreation Association) league with many local Methodist and non-Methodist churches and synagogues. Registration for 2017-2018 is Now Closed!

Last Season, 15 different teams from Advent (from K5 through Men's) competed in the Greenville United Methodist League. We had a great turnout and hope to replicate that for this season! Our practices and games will be away from Advent, but that's not going to deter our enthusiasm. We still expect as many players and welcome any and all volunteer coaches!.

Important Notes for this Season: Online Registration for all of our teams (Youth and Men's) is now closed.
