Recreation Ministry

The Recreation Ministry at First Church exists to provide a safe environment to build and deepen relationships. It is also a low pressure way to invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers to First Church. We currently offer basketball in the fall and winter, with softball in the summer. 


If you are interested in learning more about how you can be involved contact Eric Tripp. To sign up for email updates about one or more of these activities, click here.

Pickleball

What is pickleball?? One of the fastest growing sports in the nation, pickleball is a fun, low-impact sport that can be played by most anyone. We will have open gym play on Tuesdays this fall from 6:00-9:00 pm, beginning August 6. Whether you are entering the 9th GRADE or your 9th DECADE come join the fun! 

Note: Already know how to play?  If you would like to help us teach others and grow the sport, please contact Eric Tripp ASAP.


Miscellaneous notes:

  • Watch this two minute video to get an idea of what this is all about. 
  • Three courts (including paddles and balls) will be set up in the gym at our Burlington Campus. You are also welcome to bring your own paddle to use.
  • We will use a doubles format.
  • Three games at a time will be played and rotate in new players.
  • Instructors will be there to explain the game and teach as you play.


Men's Fall Basketball League 45 & Over Division:


This fall is an experiment with a new age division / style. Given that we have (AHEM) matured into some rockin' "dad bods" we may be able to handle calling our own fouls and still have fun. That's the theory at least. Think you can handle it? Have you put the NBA development league aspirations on the shelf? C'mon, you can do it! Let's have some fun playing a game we love!


Open Gym will be Thursdays, September 5, 12 and 19, 2019 from 6:30-9:30 pm.


The first game is September 26th. You must have a complete paid registration to be eligible to play on the 26th.


Cost is $35. If you have a reversible FCC jersey, the cost is $20.
