Granite United hosts 2nd annual basketball tournament in local community

Granite United Church is to host its 2nd annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament with hopes to involve local community and strengthen church ties.

On August 23rd, 2014, teams will rally in Sullivan Park (next to Veteran’s Memorial Stadium” located in South Lawrence for an all-day event. With the event open to both the church and the public, Granite is excited to immerse themselves in the community in order to establish relationships with the teen and young adult population in the city.

The tournament was originally planned last year as an effort to give teens and young adults a fun and safe place to play basketball for free. At the same time, the event allows the church to break down barriers and allow others to see that church doesn’t have to be boring.

Granite United Church has locations in Salem, NH, Londonderry, NH, Haverhill, MA, and Lawrence, MA. The church has one mission: to love others and love God. Their motto is “NO PERFECT PEOPLE ALLOWED.”

While the church always aims for community involvement, the basketball tournament offers a great opportunity to work closely with a community that they have placed themselves in.

The location was given to the church for free with the help and support of the Lawrence City Council and Nelson Ortiz who holds a title as the “Recreations Coordinator”. The city has shown excitement to hear of all the work that the church is doing with the less fortunate and the city youth. They have been very helpful and resourceful when helping the church create strong and united relationships with those in the community.

Once again, Granite United will hold its 2nd annual Basketball Tournament August 23rd. Come expecting free food, wonderful fellowship, incredible music and of course, free ball games.
