In God We Trust - Established 2008


February 13, 2018


Week 6 was another great week of basketball. We had a couple really close games till the end. Also a few upsets in the mix. We want to thank everyone who stepped up this week and helped lead the league, as well as those who ran the clock, kept the books, and refereed.  But most of all we want to thank God for allowing everyone to come together with such great sportsmanship, and willingness to make our community great!

I appreciate your concerns. This isn't a religious league. This is a Christ-centered league focused on developing relationships and friendships that extend way beyond the basketball court. Many lives have been positively impacted and even changed because of the hard work and dedication and prayers of many. Go ahead and criticize it. We are ok with that. I'll be praying that you find something better and more productive to do than sit behind a computer screen and complain about something so positive. I have hope, so I am very bold. Blessings.

If you would prefer to have a productive conversation about this over breakfast, coffee, or lunch I'd be glad to meet with you. We probably agree on way more than we disagree on. My number is 606.615.2872.

Keep telling yourself that's what the team name means. Everyone knows what they are talking about. Very distasteful.
-6 #4 Citizen 2018-02-17 12:57
Whatever! It's distasteful and you know it. You all should be ashamed.

Get your mind out of the gutter. Scottie Pipppen is a top 50 NBA player of all time.... And that my dear, ain't easy.

It’s not in bad taste at all since “Pippen” is the name of a former NBA great. It was often said that it ain’t easy being Pippen and playing with Michael Jordan
-12 #1 Citizen 2018-02-14 18:20
Pippen ain't easy? Come on this is a religious league right? The directors could've come up with a better name for that team. Kind of sets a bad example don't you think?
