"Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
Summer Camp Trip 2012
Kids and youth first summer attending AOG 3 day camp at Indian Springs Campground! Thanks to the various sponsors that made this possible. The kids were challenged to a more intense relationship with Christ and new positive relationships were formed!
Dream Center School of the Arts
Youth are able to participate in music lessons, dance lessons, art sessions and more. Services are provided through volunteers from Ballet Magnificat, Belhaven College, the comity and various churches throughout the Mississippi area.
Paradise Dream Feeding Program
Kids from the community are welcome to eat a healthy/hot supper at our center Monday-Friday from 5:00pm-6:30pm. Volunteers assist with cooking/serving/washing dishes and clean up. As of Sept 2012 UPWARD has served over 20,000 meals to kids/youth of the community. The children were excited to have JD Lewis, of the sitcom ER, visit our center with his family. They spent an evening hanging out and helped prepare and serve dinner.
