In Spirit and In Truth: Letting the Gospel Lead our Worship – Jesus said, "The true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth.: Worship is often thougth to be merely the "music time" in service, but from Jesus' statement it's clear that worship is much more than that. Worship embodies our entire life in Christ as it proclaims and lives out the Gospel. This new class will explore the theological and biblical undercurrents of worship in order to help us grow as worshippers in every aspect of our lives.

Triad offers basketball, cheering, color guard, football, and soccer via the Upward platform. This class covers Triad's history and vision for Upward Sports and your will to help shape the future of ministry through sports. It's more than coaching, officiating, and concessions.
