The Kirby Woods recreation ministry seeks to provide an opportunity for our members and guests to enjoy sports and other fun activities in a Christian environment. We try to put our athletic teams in Christian leagues. We want to focus on teaching good attitudes and fundamentals. Not only do we have sports,we also try to provide activities that involve the whole family, such as picnics and game nights.
We are pleased to offer men’s softball. Teams will play during the summer in the City of Germantown church league. Teams will usually play on Thursday evening at Houston Levee Park. Sign ups will be in the spring.

We are excited to offer Karate at Kirby Woods! Robert Blackstone is our instructor.
