Bump, Set, Fellowship

The champion team of the recreational sixes league, "I Can Dig It," poses for a photo at Jordan Park.

The annual hog roast and a final tournament capped off another fun season of Jordan Park Volleyball on Friday, August 9.

A total of 30 recreational teams of six, 38 competitive teams of six, and 19 competitive teams of four participated in this year’s season, which ran from June 4 to August 9.

"When people participate in one of the leagues and invite others to play, it really creates an amazing opportunity for fellowship, outreach, and strengthening of relationships," said Josh Smith of the Jordan Park Volleyball staff. "That, coupled with the Christ-like example of so many team leaders and participants, helps to create a welcoming, fun, and positive environment."

Along with Smith, other Jordan Park Volleyball staff members include Amelia Gibson and Adam Nordaker.
