Students are being sent back to school with fellowship, food, and fun, courtesy of Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church in Richmond Hill.
The first ever “Back to School Splash” event will be held Saturday, Aug. 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 15985 Ga. Highway 144, and the public is invited to join.
Fun activities for the whole family include a bounce house, wading pools, a splash pad, water balloons, outdoor games and more. To help everyone cool off, free popsicles will be provided from Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church, and the Let’s Taco ‘Bout It food truck will be on site so attendees can choose to purchase lunch while enjoying the free-admission event.
“We are delighted to host this event, open to all the community, as we head back to school,” said Spirit of Peace Pastor Devin Strong. “After the uncertain and exhaustive year and a half we’ve all just endured, we believe that everyone deserves a little bit of fun. This event is a way for our church to take a more active role in our community and provide a source of joy and camaraderie. We invite everyone in the community to come join us.”
Strong said they hope to receive at least 50 members of the church and community at the event. “The entire event is about kids and adults having fun on a hot day,” he said.
The mission of Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through ministry, promoting a lifestyle of worship and loving service through word and prayer.
