On Sunday August 21st, we celebrated the dedication of our new playground and recreation space with snow cones and smiling faces! During worship, the children spoke of how excited and grateful they were, and this was soon to be seen as they raced outside when worship ended. Children slid, jumped, ran, climbed, and smiled as they explored all that this new area has to offer. This includes a preschool playground, an elementary school playground that is accessible to all children, a tether ball post, a Gaga ball court, and more to come as the volleyball court and pavilion are set up and completed. We are so grateful to the many people who put in long hours and hard work to make this happen. We want this recreation space to be a place where people in the community can gather and bring their families for fellowship and fun! This Sunday was only the beginning of what is sure to be a well-used and welll-loved part of Smoke Rise Baptist Church. Thank you for making this dream a reality for our children and our community!
