Located in Woodlawn, UCW WyldLife is in its 8th year of existence! WyldLife is our middle school ministry where we build relationships with students, mentoring them and guiding them toward a relationship with God. We have club weekly where we play games, listen to music, eat food and hear a message about God and take kids to camp twice a year! Our team of 3 leaders serves over 50 students and families.

Located at Compassion Baptist Church, Basketball Club gathers students from all over the south side to help advance their skills on and off the court. Our core values are Faith, Family, and Fitness. We do drills, conditioning, strength training, and personal assessments.
