BENTON HARBOR — Young people need a safe place to connect, especially in underserved communities, said Pastor Taurus Montgomery of Harbor of Hope Seventh-day Adventist Church in Benton Harbor.

That’s why the Rise Up Basketball Court was built in front of the church at 769 Pipestone St. The grand opening for the court will be Sunday, which will feature a 5-on-5 basketball tournament.
