End of Summer Shindig

September 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

End your summer with fun at the congregational summer celebration Saturday, September 17!  The “Summer Shindig” will go from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will be filled with fun activities for everyone to enjoy.  For the kids, there will be games, fun competitions and prizes.  Adults can enjoy great fellowship, food, music, bingo (with prizes!), and more.  Also, there will be an 8-on-8 co-ed soccer tournament, a 6-on-6 co-ed volleyball tournament, and, of course, the annual Jeff Balsom Memorial Softball Tournament.  Each ministry center can field a team for each sport; however, players can participate on only one of these teams.  Freshman in high school and older can play.  Lastly, there will be a “bags” tournament for those 18 years old and up.  There is no limit on the number of people who can participate in the bags tournament.  Unfortunately, due to grilling restrictions at the park, we will not be able to bring grills or have a BBQ competition.  However, we can bring picnic food, plus there will be a concession stand selling food and drinks as well.
