about us

HUMC Sports is a ministry of Huntersville United Methodist Church.

While the church enjoys a 100 year old + history, the sports ministry is just over 2 years old.  Beginning in March 2020, we launched our first sport (Pickleball) and today have over 230 members in our club!   Over the next 2 years we are looking forward to introducing other sports under the HUMC banner.

Our mission

HUMC Sports seeks to create a fun, Christ-centered environment where all participants can engage in safe, competitive play while growing in their faith, deepening their friendships and becoming better in their sport.
