Join us this August for Rolling River Rampage. Children will pretend to go on a whitewater rafting adventure to experience the ride of a lifetime with God! Along the river, children discover that life with God is an adventure full of wonder and surprise, and that they can trust God to be with them through anything. Relevant music, exciting science, creative crafts, fun recreation, and memorable Bible stories will help kids know that God is always with them as they ride the rapids of amazing grace!

Children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to attend. The cost is $15 per child or $35 per family with three or more children. Cost includes all materials and a pizza lunch with a short program for families on Thursday, August 9, at noon.

Adults, please consider volunteering to help; it’s fun and the children love having their parents there.

Registration forms are available in the church office and below. Contact Pastor John Smoke at john@dgfumc.org with any questions or for more information.
