Recreation & Fitness Ministry
Mission: To be a point of entry and connection to our community, while promoting Christian relationships and attitudes through recreation and fitness.
The ROCK is where fitness, fun and outreach all come together! The Recreation Ministry at First Baptist Smyrna has an exciting schedule of events year-round. With a wide variety of sport and fitness related opportunities offered, there is sure to be a league, team, or class you will want to be a part of.
We believe that recreation is a great tool to introduce others to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Some of the ways we do this is to maintain a Christ-like atmosphere, promote good sportsmanship, help others improve overall physical health, enhance relationships among families and, of course, take every opportunity to share with them the love of Christ.
Paul the Apostle wrote: “Physical fitness has value; spiritual fitness is of unlimited value, for it holds promise for the present life and the life to come.”
Each spring, summer, and fall First Baptist Smyrna fields our own co-ed slowpitch softball tems. We play on Friday evenings throughout the year at Tolleson Park. Our teams are made up of adult groups, plus our high school and college ministries.

Upward Sports is an evangelistic sports ministry specifically
designed for kindergarten through eighth grade boys and girls that
promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in every child.
In Upward Sports, our goal is to help our children grow and develop in all areas: physical, emotional, and spiritual. In many sports and recreation programs, winning is emphasized as the priority objective. In Upward Sports, we place emphasis on building character qualities like best effort, sportsmanship, leadership, and above all, Christ-likeness. The development of these character qualities, coupled with skills development, results in a sports ministry that benefits the whole child. This focus in no way diminishes the competition. In fact, it enhances and stimulates it, all in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
The Upward Sports Ministry of First Baptist Smyrna offers cheerleading, basketball, flag football, softball, t-ball leagues. Upward Sports provides opportunities for the members of our church, and the community at large, no matter what denomination, to become meaningfully involved in the sports ministry of First Baptist Smyrna. These opportunities include coaching or assistant coaching, becoming a commissioner, a prayer partner, a concession worker, and much more.

The golf course provides a common ground for the church
and the community to build relationships and utilize a cultural interest
to share the love of Jesus Christ. We have chosen to partner with
His Grip to to reach out to every golfer in every
community with the message of living Christ-like.
In addition to our In His Grip events, we offer seasonal golf outings for our members and community. Golf events will be posted on the News & Events page and listed in First Baptist Smyrna publications.
