					                    Eighth Street Mennonite Church
We are a Christian community rooted in Anabaptism that welcomes diversity and is
 devoted to worshiping God and to extending God's love to the congregation, to
                          Goshen, and to the world.

                    He has told you, O mortal, what is good:
                    and what does the LORD require of you
                                but to do justice,
                             and to love kindness,
                      and to walk humbly with your God?

Description: Gorgeous beautiful street ball move the basket against the passion, the strong deafening dunk, alley-oop reward enlightened purpose, coupled with radiant HIPHOP music, pitch side dressed in black clothing HIPHOP wide boys with the music twist the rhythm of the body, from time to time as the court can not, by definition of the goals screaming. The game is not in the official basketball court, the wide street, the city square, and even the factory space, as long as erecting a basketball goal, where is their home! This is not just a sport, but an art, if you can place in them, you can feel the share of street ball caused by the shock. This is street basketball, a black street culture from the U.S. basketball form.
