Athletics @ SW

All ministries here at Southwest Bible Church aim to contribute to the ultimate ministry of God’s Church—proclaiming Jesus Christ and building up the Body of Christ with mature disciples of His. Our Athletic ministries support this ultimate goal. We provide venues for Christians to fellowship and grow in Christ-like character while getting some good exercise in! At these sporting events, you can meet new people with common interests. This starts and builds Christ-honoring relationships that can carry over into the rest of the life of the family of believers here at SW. Personal guests of SW attenders are welcome to join them at any of the events.

Incoming 6th-8th graders are welcome to attend our summertime Sports Camp!

our field use policy

We are happy to share our field with our neighbors on a first come, first served basis. However, our neighbors must be willing and gracious to clear off the field for church sponsored events (you are invited to attend the event!) and Southwest Christian School physical education classes, and sports teams (practices and games) which require use of the field.

We do not provide restroom facilities for public use. Should your pet not understand this policy, please immediately clean up after them!

If you would like to speak further about potential field use options, please contact Carl Stubblefield

We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. Help us take care of our field, so we can all enjoy it!
