Vote for Lexington Schools on 'CelebrateMyDrive' beginning October 15th PDF Print E-mail

First, the not-so-good news:  More teens die from car crashers than any other cause. And teh first year of driving is the most dangerous.

The good news: There's something we all can do about it.  And it involves a celebration!

That's what Celebrate My Drive is all about -- celebrating this big, new life of freedom that comes with a driver's licenses.  Part of that life means making smart choices behind the wheel, which is why we're spreading the message of 2N2 - 2 eyes on the road, 2 hands on the wheel.

It's a simple habit that can reduce distracted driving and help new drivers build confidence on the road.  This party even gives you and your high school a shot at some pretty sweet prizes - like a $100,000 or $25,000 grant for your high school, and maybe even one of two Grand Prize concerts featuring the Band Perry.

Last year, thousands of high schools in communities all over North America joined the celebration, with more than six million safe driving commitments made.  And you're invited to this year's party.  More information will be in the next Lexingtonian.

 
Upward Basketball and Cheer at Lexington Community Church PDF Print E-mail

Upward Sports Basketball and Cheer league is back!  Lexington Community Church is sponsoring our sixth season of this exciting sports experience and is entering the second season of cheerleading in addition to the basketball program.  If you have a child from Kindergarten to 6th grade and would like to have them involved in a top notch league that reflects wholesome values, this might be right for you.

Upward is the world's largest Christian sports league for children.  There are more than 2,400 churches participating worldwide, representing over 40 denominations.  For more information about Upward Sports, visit www.upward.org.

Our goal is to give equal focus to character building and fundamental skills for competitive competition. All practices and games are held in Lexington so travel is limited.  Also, to limit time commitment, practices and games are each held once per week.  There are 8 weeks of games that run through January and February.

One different aspect this season will be an updated format at 5th and 6th grade level.  In order to better prepare the older kids for next level play, we will more closely follow the standard basketball format you will see in schools. This will include four quarters, defense will not be limited to man to man, regulation size balls, and full court games. We are also considering an end of season tournament.

The program has enjoyed growth every year and we want you to be a part of it.  Register online or get a printable brochure at www.lexcc.org/#/youth/upward-sports.  Registration fee is $60 to sign up before October 13th, and $75 afterward.  There are scholarships available as well if needed. Please contact Rick Baker This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or contact the church office 309-365-3681 for more information.

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity!
