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. Around fifty elementary-aged children were playing pool and ping pong, turning cartwheels, doing art, and eating pizza. Oh, and there was a movie going! 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 the Children’s Ministry, we want to nurture those relationships, 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 eighty cans of fruit for United Ministries!
Our next event will be our October 13 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. All children grades 1-5 are welcome to join in the fun!
