(Disciples of Christ)
a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world


Recreational Ministry

Beargrass has one of the most active athletic ministry programs in Louisville—and we are fortunate to have a gym on our campus that is well-used all year long by groups from inside and outside of the church.


We host the Disciples Basketball League from January through March. Three adult leagues (Monday, Thursday and Friday nights) provide opportunities for adults of different skill levels. Middle School and High School leagues play on Saturday. At the end of the season, we have our own version of “March Madness “ with tournaments for all of the leagues. For more information, please contact David Girton.


We host the Disciples Volleyball League from September through November. Area church teams, including teams from Beargrass, participate in a Thursday night league. For more information, please contact Jim Sams III.


When the weather warms up a bit, we turn our attention to softball. We participate in the church league at Watkins Methodist Church and enter teams for men, women, and co-ed players. For more information or to sign up, please contact Jim Sams III.

Other Sports

We also have members and friends of the church who organize special activities such as golf tournaments, cycling trips, bowling outings, and participation in 5Ks, minis, and marathons.

Our athletic ministry programs provide opportunities for fun, fellowship, and for making new friends!
