Recreation Ministry

West Jackson’s recreation ministry offers a positive environment and professional facilities for our members and the greater Jackson community – including workout rooms, a walking track, gymnasium, playground, softball and soccer fields, and more.

Our Recreation Ministry exists to provide West Jackson members and the greater Jackson community with opportunities to enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities in a positive and professional environment. Through our Courts Membership, individuals and families can access our facilities on a weekly basis throughout the year (except on holidays and when the church office is closed). Learn more about our facilities, weekly schedules, and how to become a member below.
