We love our sports ministries! Through these channels we encourage our congregants to invite those who are not attending church to connect with us using their passion for sports. Some of these opportunities are:
We participate in a summer long coed church league that lasts from June - August. The league games are scheduled on Sunday afternoons at Cunnigham Park in Fresh Meadows, NY. On Sunday afternoons in the summer when we do not play we hold practices for those who simply want to learn and fellowship. We aim to be highly inclusive, welcoming and encouraging, for we view our sports teams to be an opportunity to fellowship as a light to this city. Our softball team also participates in our one day Hope East Queens Softball Tournament.
We participate in a church basketball league from January - April. The league games are scheduled on Sunday afternoons/evenings at Holy Cross High School in Auburndale, NY. We hold practices during the weekdays for those who wish to run with our team. And of course, even if you do not want to be on the team, you are still more than welcome to join our practices for some exercise! We also participate in the annual Hope Church NYC Basketball Tournament, which will be on February 16, 2019 at Frank Sinatra School of Arts in Astoria, NY.
