The Ultimate Challenge is a fall highlight for anyone who likes basketball.

The tournament was held once again at the Mentor High School gyms. Over 100 competitors and spectators gathered on a Tuesday night for a 3-on-3 basketball competition. Teams competed for the top spot on the court in junior varsity, varsity, and post-grad divisions.

Before the tournament started, our senior pastor shared a challenge from God's Word. Just like a person who is 5'0" cannot hope to play in the NBA no matter how hard he works, we can never earn our way to Heaven. The only way we can get there is to have a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

60 minutes of fast-paced basketball ensued. Whoever was on the top court at the final buzzer took home the prize. Winning teams received gift cards to Dick's Sporting Goods, and several more won raffle prizes.

All who attended are invited back to Grace Church for Youth Group any Sunday or Wednesday!
