In the   2012-13 season we have had at least TWO accept the Lord through basketball!

In the  2011-12 season we had at least SIX players accept Christ through the basketball program!

Give God the glory for the addition to His Kingdom!


Moriah Basketball Purpose and Philosophy

Philosophy of the program:
1. Designed for Christian fellowship, recreation and outreach.
2. Designed for the development of the boys/girls in their game skills.
3. Designed for sharing the spirit of Christ, His love and mission with others and with sister churches through the boys/girls/ladies/men.

Going to multiple gyms on the same night

Anyone that has to attend more than one gym on the SAME NIGHT, must see the gatekeeper at the FIRST GYM and get a pass for the NEXT GYM.

This pass is only good for that night and the specific number of people that come to the gatekeeper.

In other words one person cannot say "There are six of us going to Hyde Park from Zion". ALL OF THE PEOPLE MUST GO TO THE GATEKEEPER at one time.

The passes are supposed to be at each gym.

Are you focused on Jesus?


Coaches are really focused on Jesus or just winning?
Jesus died for all of us,
so that anyone who believes in Him may be saved.
