If you had wandered onto the terrace level of the AYMC on a recent Friday night and heard the laughter and the chatter in the air, you might have assumed a party was going on. Over fifty elementary-aged children were playing pool and ping pong, turning cartwheels, doing art and eating pizza. Oh, there was a movie going, too! It may have looked like a party, felt like a party and even tasted like a party, but there was something else going on, too – something very important! Our children were busy building relationships with their church friends; friendships we hope will grow and deepen through the years along with their faith. In Children’s Ministries, we want to nurture those relationships, and so we provide monthly opportunities for kids to enjoy each other’s company and get to know each other better. Most fellowship activities include a missions component, too. This time we collected over fifty cans of fruit for United Ministries!

Our next event will be our September 29 outing to Denver Downs, when we’ll jump on hay bales and pet goats, shoot corn cannons and navigate a corn maze. We’ll even enjoy a hayride together. Parents can find more information and sign up their children here.
