The Leisure Ministries program at Aldersgate is designed to promote a wide variety of activities with special emphasis on spiritual and physical enhancement. It is our long-term goal to create a program which meets the needs of all age levels, as well as interest levels. We hope that you will find something of interest here that will help draw you closer to God and to the church as a whole. Perhaps you may find that you have a particular interest or gift that you would like to share.

Consider joining the greatest team ever, become a Disciple of Christ! Join us for Aldersgate’s 2019 – 2020 fall basketball season and spend some quality time in God’s presence.
This year we will have a Men’s team, with a minimum age of 16 by April of this year. The Men’s team will play on Monday nights at Gower Park. The season is 8 games long with additional tournament play as long as we win one game.
Aldersgate UMC has two fully enclosed playground areas. The “Sand Lot” is designed for our younger pre-school children and the “Play Zone” is equipped for our K5 and elementary age kids. They are located at the back of the church property – across the drive from the gymnasium. There is also a nice clearing area for group games.
If you are more into t-ball, softball or soccer, then check out our small ballfield beside the upper parking area. It makes a great place to run and play.
When the weather is too rough to play outside then come in to our full regulation sized basketball court with adjustable backboards for our younger players. If basketball isn’t your sport, how about some volleyball or wall-ball.
All of these recreational resources are available to members on a reservation basis. They are great places for birthday parties and family get-togethers. If you are a church member 21 years of age or older, contact the church office (864-244-1820) for available times.
