Preschool and Children's Fall Kick Off
The Preschool and Children's Ministries held their 2017 Fall Kick-off Event Friday, August 25 with the carnival theme "Come One, Come All"!

We had an amazing turn out of over 400 participants with 70+ volunteers to host carnival games, bouncy houses, an inflatable obstacle course, and train rides! We were thrilled to have many guests and friends attend with our members as we were able to fellowship and have fun while building stronger relationships and creating wonderful memories for our babies through 6th graders. Our families and guests enjoyed hot dogs, chips, and ice pops and we were able to send our extra hot dogs to the Downtown Rescue Mission to spread a little love to those in need.

Special thanks go out to the planning coordinators - Megan Miller, MaryAnn Moon, and Laura Roberts, and to the MANY volunteers who gave of their time and hearts to our little ones. We are excited for the 2017-2018 year and hope more of you will join us for upcoming events!
