First United Methodist Church got students off to school with a weekend-long series of events. Thanks to the church’s Facebook page for contributing to this story.
There was a Lock in on Friday night for the teenagers. Activities included a scavenger hunt on Front Street in the wee hours of the night, movies, games and Bible study.
For the youngsters of the church, age 4 years through 5th grade, there was a Camp Out program on Sunday beginning at 2:00 pm. The kids enjoyed a simulated campsite, games, and other fun activities.
On Sunday evening from 5:00 to 8:00 pm it was the “Back to School Bash” with games and water slides. The bash was for kids of all ages. Some of the adults needed a change into dry clothes at the end of the fun outdoor activities. Activates were topped off with a hamburger supper and fantastic desserts.
The Church issued a big thank you Karen Squires, Rev. Curtis Carroll, Diane Jackson, John Brewer, David and Kaitlyn Beard, Ethan Squires, Tori Bamburg, Kelley Lee, Ginger Craig, Patti Strother, Debbie Bell, Lisa Phillips, Mary Evelyn Jowers and others for their assistance in making this a special “back to school” activity.
