"Church Ball" is the story of Dennis Buckstead (Andrew Wilson) and his team of uncoordinated misfits from the Mud Lake Ward. It's the last year church basketball will be officially sponsored by the church and whoever claims this year's trophy...keeps it for life. Everything is at stake-pride, glory, honor-and Dennis is charged by the ward bishop (Fred Willard) to take his team of ultimate misfits to the final regional tourney and claim the coveted title of regional champions. Only one team stands in their way...the Crystal Hills Ward, with the always-victorious lawyers, the Bracken brothers. With the notorious Brackens standing in the way...the last game of church ball is set to be the most important and potentially biggest brawl in history - winner takes all. Church Ball - it's not how you play the game...it's whether you win or lose.
