We welcomed an inspired group of middle school students from Carmichael Presbyterian Church the weekend of February 23. The middle schoolers danced with Tout Tou, learned about Southeast Asian history and culture, and got to help FIRM’s staff by cleaning, erasing graffitti and preparing activities for our after school programs.
On Saturday, they rented one of the greatest bounce houses ever seen, complete with an obstacle course and slide on either end of it. We had a two hour festival for the Summerset families, which attracted everyone from babies to grandparents, who wanted to see the colorful yellow and red castle in our “front yard”.
We are so appreciative of the time and energy that youth pastors and churches spend preparing youth to serve here well. If you are interested in sending youth from your church, we are already starting to plan our three weeks of FIRM Family Festivals for this summer. Please contact Christine Barker or Sophia DeWitt at FIRM to learn more.
